21 praises to Tara video

Translated by Erik Pema Kunsang. Music by Tara Trinley Wangmo. Rearranged and singing by Sascha Alexandra Aurora and Rodrigo Reijers.

It is said that these verses, originally sung by Buddha Shakyamuni, are packed with profound meaning and blessings. For centuries they have been chanted in Sanskrit and Tibetan, and now we can practice them in English in the wonderful translation of Erik Pema Kunsang.

Tara is the embodiment of Compassion and Insight, and here we praise her 21 manifestations, each with their specific activities and blessings.

Much has been said and written about these verses and their meanings. This article by Tai Situ Rinpoche for example explains each manifestation and their blessings.

For those who would like to connect deeply to Tara, and aspire to dive in the complete path to liberation, we wholeheartedly recommend to look into the Tara Triple Excellence, an online practice program designed by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche.

Most of the images used here have been commissioned by Dzongsar Kyentse Rinpoche for the Tara shrine of Dzongsar Bhutan.

This video is meant for you to chant along, and we hope you will enjoy doing so. May it benefit countless beings!
