We are chanting the Green Tara mantra for the people of India and Pakistan and for the region …
In Tibetan, we chant “Om Tare Tuttare Ture Soha” … In Sanskrit, it is “Oṃ Tāre Tuttāre Ture Svāhā”.
Tibetan culture, and some others, green is considered to include all the other colors.
The practice of Green Tara helps to overcome fear and anxiety, but devotees also believe that she can grant wishes, eliminate suffering of all kinds and bring happiness.
When called upon, she instantaneously saves us from eight specific calamities. (Another lineage describes 16.) The First Dalai Lama lists the 8, and interprets them as representative of corresponding defects, flaws, or obscurations: 1) lions and pride 2) wild elephants and delusions 3) forest fires and hatred 4) snakes and envy 5) robbers and fanatical views 6) prisons and avarice 7) floods and lust 8) demons and doubt.
OM TARE TUTTARE TURE SOHA
OM represents Tara’s sacred body, speech and mind.
TARE means liberating from all discontent.
TUTTARE means liberating from the eight fears, the external dangers, but mainly from the internal dangers, the delusions.
TURE means liberating from duality; it shows the true cessation of confusion.
SOHA means “may the meaning of the mantra take root in my mind.”
