Card Laminated; Chenrezig, 5" x 7"
Card Laminated; Eight Verses for Training the Mind, 7 x 9 inch
The Buddha of Great Compassion Avalokiteshvara ('One who hears the cries of the world') is the embodiment of infinite compassion. Long ago he vowed not to return to nirvana until all living beings had been liberated from suffering. To accomplish this, Avalokiteshvara travels to all realms of the universe offering his compassionate blessings to all beings. In his four-armed form, sitting in the full lotus posture, he represents the four immeasurable qualities of a bodhisattva: love, compassion, joy, and equanimity. Avalokiteshvara holds a lotus flower in his left hand, symbolizing the stainless wisdom that has realized the true nature of reality. Avalokiteshvara reminds us that awakening is not an escape or retreat from personal problems, but rather reaching outward and embracing the entire world with the love and compassion of our heart.
Composed by the Buddhist Master Langri Tangpa (1054-1123), Eight Verses for Training the Mind is a highly-revered text from the Mahayana Lojong (mind training) Tradition. These instructions offer essential practices for cultivating the awakening mind of compassion, wisdom, and love (bodhichitta). In just eight simple verses, this remarkable teaching enshrines the very heart of Buddha Dharma, revealing the true essence of the Mahayana path to liberation. As we practice these lojong teachings, we train the mind to embrace reality in a completely wholesome, wise, and compassionate way.
These excellent practices help us purify negativity and awaken the heart by giving us a way to transform adversity and hardship into a direct opportunity for spiritual growth. In this way, rather than perceiving difficult people or adverse circumstances in our lives as an obstacle, tragedy, or punishment, we now meet these experiences with deep compassion, wisdom, and skill, using them as the actual path to enlightenment. His Holiness the Dalai Lama refers to this work as one of the main sources of his own inspiration and includes it in his daily meditations.

They are also known as the Four Limitless Ones, The Four Sublime States, The Four Boundless States, and the Brahmaviharas or Divine Abodes. These four qualities of true love are said to be sublime, noble, and most excellent for they are the ideal way of relating with all living beings.

Card Laminated; Guru Rinpoche, 5" x 7"
Green Tara, Buddha of Active Compassion
The Goddess Green Tara is a gentle female embodiment of universal compassion. Green Tara represents the virtuous, enlightened, and miraculous activity of all Buddhas. She reaches out her hand in the gesture of granting protection, freeing one from fear, obstacles, and difficulties. With her right foot stepping forward, she is alert, determined, and ready to actively help all who call upon her. Green Tara is known as the 'Swift One' or the 'Swift Liberator' due to her immediate response to those who request her aid. Green Tara's compassion for the welfare of all living beings is said to be even stronger than a mother's love for her children. She is the one who helps us cross over the ocean of suffering and guides us upon the path of enlightenment.

During his time in Tibet, Padmasambhava founded monasteries, taught tantric doctrine, and benefited countless beings. He sits in the posture of royal ease, displaying the naturally awakened state in which everything relaxes into the condition of primordial purity.
Card Laminated; Manjushri, 5" x 7"
Card Laminated; Medicine Buddha, 5x7
Manjushri, The Buddha of Transcendent Wisdom
Manjushri is the embodiment of transcendent or perfect wisdom. His blessings are said to be like the all-pervading light of the sun whose radiance dispels the obscuring clouds of ignorance, revealing the wisdom and clarity of our awakened nature. His flaming sword represents discriminating wisdom - the ability of the enlightened mind to cut through the afflictions of delusion, hatred, and greed. Manjushri holds the stem of a lotus blossom upon which rests the scripture of Perfected Wisdom (Prajnaparamita Sutra). This suggests the ability of the awakened mind and heart to see all things as they truly are, free from limited, dualistic, and separative views of reality. Manjushri meditation practice is said to confer mastery of the Dharma, retentive memory, mental clarity, and eloquence of speech.
Medicine Buddha, The Buddha of Healing
Medicine Buddha is the embodiment of the collective healing power of all the Buddhas. He is the physician, the enlightened healer who protects living beings from physical and mental sickness, as well as other dangers and obstacles. Medicine Buddha helps all beings to effectively eradicate the three poisons of attachment, hatred, and ignorance, which are the cause of all sickness and suffering. He has the power to see the true cause of all afflictions, whether physical, psychological, or spiritual, and does whatever is necessary to alleviate this suffering. Medicine Buddha has his right hand outstretched in the gesture of supreme generosity, giving protection from illness and holding the great medicine plant myrobalan.
Card Laminated; Shakyamuni Buddha, 5 x 7 inch
Card Laminated; Vajrasattva with Consort, 5" x 7"
Shakyamuni Buddha, The Founder of Buddhism
Shakyamuni Buddha was born about 2600 years ago in what is now Nepal. He was known as Siddhartha Gautama, a prince and son of King Suddhodana and Queen Mayadevi. At the age of 29, he renounced the luxury of his royal heritage to take up the life of a religious wanderer. He submitted himself to rigorous and extreme ascetic practices, putting forth a superhuman struggle for six strenuous years. At the age of 35, after gaining profound insight into the true nature of reality (Dharma), he attained complete enlightenment. For the remainder of his life, living as the perfect embodiment of all the virtues he preached, the Buddha ('Awakened One') traveled widely teaching the Dharma. He offered his teachings to men, women, and children from all walks of life so they could also end suffering and attain awakening.
Vajrasattva is the embodiment of wisdom, clarity, and purity. He sits in tantric union with his female consort, representing the nondual mind of enlightenment - the intimate union of compassion (male) and wisdom/insight (female). Buddhist teachings suggest the Vajrasattva meditation as a powerful practice for eliminating impurities accumulated from past unwholesome physical, verbal, and mental actions. Just as a mirror needs to be cleaned to allow for a pure reflection, our obscurations must also be eliminated to allow for the clarity of full enlightenment. Vajrasattva represents the ultimate purification through the sublime realization of our true nature, which is always pure and stainless.

White Tara, Compassionate Mother of Long Life
White Tara represents the enlightened and liberating activity of all the Buddhas. She embodies the motherly aspect of universal compassion. Her compassion for living beings and her desire to save them from suffering is said to be even stronger than a mother's love for her children. White Tara, the Mother of all Buddhas, is known for her swiftness in responding to the prayers of those who invoke her name. Her right hand is open towards us in the gesture of supreme generosity, signifying her ability to fulfill our spiritual and material needs. Her left hand is in the gesture (mudra) of bestowing blessing, refuge, and protection. White Tara meditation practice is said to grant health, long life, fearlessness, patience, and peace.
