Tara of Compassion, long life, healing and serenity.

The myth of the White Tara began when she showed up as the tear of Avalokiteshvara, also known as Chenzering, who the Dali Lama is a reincarnation of. She appeared when Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of all Buddhas, moved into a state of compassion… when his mind and his heart met in wisdom… and the suffering he saw because the the lack of this balance, made him cry. Then he could see Her… or it is said she appeared. For that is who she is, the compassion expressed in that tear. It could be said the tear cleared the eye to see her. She is the expression of compassion. It is time to let the waters flow… let our tears cleanse and nourish… let it dissove fear in all its manifestations especially hatred. When we practice the White Tara mantra visualize fear melting away.
