(Here is a more in depth look at the 21 Taras than what will be listed in this section currently : Meet the 21 Taras, happy Learning!)

White Tara

Mantra : Oṃ Tāre Tuttāre Ture Mama Ayuḥ Punya Jñānā Puśtiṃ Kuru Svāhā

Sitala ‘the cool one’; Sanskrit: Sitatara; Tibetan: Sgrol-dkar or Dolkar.

Associated with Health / Healing & Compassion.

Note her 7 Eyes ‘all the better to see all Suffering with’. Her face, equipped with three. Two, within her hands & two, on the soles of her feet.

She sits in BLANK Lotus* Mother of all Taras*

Feel that your body is completely filled up with those qualities, then recite the mantra 21 times.


Then recite one mala of: OM TARE TUTTARE TURE SVAHA

You should do four malas each day of this mantra. Then think your body becomes not just flesh and bones; your body becomes in the nature of light, calm and clear.
