Excerpt from Praises to White Tara
By Gedun Drukpa, the first Dalai Lama
Namo Arya Tara-yai! Seated on a white lotus and cool moon the supreme goddess, White Tara, is the glory and beauty of youth, radiant like the snow mountain, the embodiment of ever-extending wisdom and compassion. To you, White Tara, I pay homage.
She has one face and two arms and sits cross-legged with a moon cushion for back rest. Symbolizing the expansion of great bliss, she displays elegant gestures, expanding her bosom. To you, White Tara, I pay homage. Making the gesture known as "the bestowing of supreme bliss," you display the actions of infinite peace, the eight accomplishments and the state of complete Buddhahood. To you, White Tara, I pay homage.
You hold the blue lotus in your left hand while making the gesture of bestowing refuge. You protect sentient beings from the fear of the lion (arrogance), of the elephant (stupidity), of fire (anger) and of snakes (jealousy). You are the Mother of all the Buddhas of the three times. To you, White Tara, I pay homage.
Through the eyes on the palms of your hands and the soles of your feet, which symbolize the doors of liberation of emptiness, you lead all sentient beings to the island of bliss and freedom. To you, White Tara, refuge of all sentient beings, I pay homage.
To those who respectfully bow to you and merely say your mantra, you bestow all accomplishments and give whatever one wishes, including long life, wisdom and merit. To you, White Tara, I pay homage.
You are the embodiment of all the Buddha's compassion, wisdom and spontaneous activity, given form as a beautiful goddess. I take refuge in you and request your blessings that all obstacles be overcome and all purposeful attainments be realized.
Please quickly dispel the fears that act as obstacles to my enlightenment.
Please quickly bestow the ability to accomplish all activities that increase my virtuous activities - long life, merit, compassion and perfect wisdom. Help me accomplish the Three Trainings - listening, contemplating and meditation.
Please give your blessing to those spontaneous actions that quickly bring all that one wishes, including the respect of all beings.
