Tara is the an embodiment of active compassion of all the Buddhas, she provides quick assistance to those who call upon her. Tara the liberator removes obstacles and empowers us to reach enlightenment within this very body, this very life. Cittamani Tara, is a rare highest yoga tantra form of Tara. The practice of Cittamani Tara, the heart jewel or wish fulfilling jewel, is a body mandala that focuses on the winds, channels and drops of the divine body.

“Tara can solve many problems in your life: she can liberate you from untimely death; help you recover from disease; bring you success in business; help you find a job; and bring you wealth. When you have a really serious problem, such as a life-threatening disease, if you rely on Tara, commonly you will be freed from that problem, or you will recover from that disease… These are common experiences… Tara’s meditation practice is quick to grant success in obtaining the ultimate happiness of enlightenment.” Lama Zopa Rinpoche (Kopan 1987)
