Arya Tara Statue at the LEW Center.


For the layperson, the Arya Tara brings great protection and benefit. Many people recite the Tara Sadhana as a daily practice.

There are 21 praises or supplications to Green Tara and her 20 manifestations. The benefits of her practice are written directly in the 21 Praises to Tara sadhana:

"To the wise, devoted to the goddess, who recite these stanzas. At evening or upon arising at dawn, who recollect them, Jetsun Tara grants fearlessness, Pacifies all their unwholesome actions, and destroys all lower destinies. 70 million Blesses Ones will quickly initiate the wise; Greatness beyond this is obtained and the wise go to the final buddhahood.


If a dreadful poison, whether animal or vegetable, Is eaten or drunk, for the wise who recollect, it is completely nullified The wise are free from the sufferings inflicted by spirits, poisons, or diseases; And as it works or them, it works for other beings, too. If they recite these stanzas clearly, two, three, seven times, By wishing  for sons, they will have sons, wishing for wealth, they will gain wealth. They will obtain all they desire, and there will be no obstacles to hinder them."
