Description About the author Contents
Tara is an object of devotional worship and meditative practice for Tibetan Buddhists everywhere. Tara clears away fears, overpowers negative emotions, and enables all beings to reach enlightenment. As she has vowed to take rebirth as a female throughout infinite lifetimes, Tara also has special resonance as a source of female spiritual wisdom. Tibetans of all schools and traditions recite the verses on which this commentary is based.

Sought-after teachers throughout the West for over twenty-five years, the authors illuminate the practice of the Praises to the Twenty-one Taras with humor and wisdom, making the material accessible not only to Buddhist practitioners, but also to a general audience and those specifically interested in female manifestations of the divine.

The first section offers a historical account of the veneration of Tara; the second provides a multilayered analysis of the twenty-one emanations of Tara and the meditation practices associated with them. The explanations cover progressively more subtle levels from basic Buddhism through the Inner Tantras and culminate with Dzogchen. Interspersed with lively stories about Tara, the authors explain the physical conditions for practice, the outer and inner meanings of the text itself, and give solutions for problems that may emerge as practice progresses. This guide brings fresh understanding to students, enriching their practice and further spreading the merit of their effort.
