Cosmic Heart Oil: Makes a Great Mother’s Day Gift!!!
I have a Green Mother Tara on my desk, by my computer. Today is clean up day in our area. A powerful storm with high winds uprooted and knocked down trees, limbs, roofing shingles, and blew yard decorations and debris into many yards. The storm left us without power the whole day and into the evening hours.
As I hear the chainsaws and clean up going on outside, I am reminded to connect with the trees coming down, giving them gratitude for their BEING on this earth plane. All the shade they provided and wisdom whispering in the wind to all those that would listen…. priceless.
I thought I would share more information on Mother Tara so that you may connect with her as well! Especially with all the Natural Disasters that are taking place all over the globe. Well, disasters to us… but cleansing and rebirth for Mother Earth.
Connect with Mother Earth/ Goddess energy, Send Healing and Love and Pray… it is all needed at this time.

Mother Tara has the power to remove all obstacles and problems and to help anyone who requests her help as long as all is done with good intention. I have personally connected with Mother Tara ever since I discovered her. Tara is also known as the “Swift Liberator” because she is the all-powerful goddess who acts very quickly.
In Sanskrit, the name Tara means ‘Star’, but She was also called ‘She Who Brings Forth Life’, The Great Compassionate Mother, and The Embodiment of Wisdom, and the Great Protectress.
Tara is actually the essence of the goddess energy within you …. the Goddess Tara arises from within yourself. This energy transcends religions, cultures, race, and is not just for women! It’s also for men because then you have the combination of yin and yang. Connect with Tara, and visualize her at your heart, in the form of a beautiful green goddess.
While Green Tara encompasses all the Taras, you may also feel drawn to White Tara, Yellow Tara, Red Tara, or Black Tara. To me, Green Tara is another symbol of Mother Earth/Mother Goddess. Connect with which ever Tara you have a great affinity with and what you want to ask from her. So, I often visualize Tara in all the five colors. What are the five colors? Green, White, Yellow, Red, and Black.
You will find that by invoking good things coming to you, the combination of the five colors have greater strength and meaning. If you go to many of the Tibetan Buddhist high lamas, they give ‘blessing threads’ that come in five colors. The five colors actually represent all the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas of the world and all the various spiritual Higher Beings.
White Tara, the pacifying one: If you are in pain or suffering from a severe illness, connect with White Tara and envision her sending healing energy into you. There is nothing better for illness than goddess energy! If you are sad or depressed, you need White Tara. She will calm all of your extreme emotions giving you peace of mind to enjoy your life. White Tara is very powerful.
Yellow Tara: Increases wealth and prosperity, life force and spirit essence, knowledge, skills and wisdom. If you are anxious about your house value, money, assets, etc., connect with Yellow Tara. She is truly the Goddess of wealth and abundance.
Red Tara: The Goddess of Power and Authority. She increases your confidence and blesses you with the power of speech to influence those around you.
Black Tara: Identical in form and, no doubt, source, to Hindu Kali and is associated with power. Like Kali, She has a headdress of grinning skulls, like Kali, she is black, like Kali She has three eyes. Like many Tibetan deities in the wrathful aspect, She has the fangs of a tiger, symbolizing ferocity, a ferocious appetite to devour the demons of the mind. Her aura or halo is fiery, energetic, full of smoke symbolizing the transformation of fire. The Black Tara has been compared to the perfect guardian of the void, the Divine Mother of compassion and a firm Goddess to ward off any forms of evil.
According to Tibetan culture, it is said that all the teachings of Buddha are contained in the mantra Om Mani Padme Hum, and that to know the phrase is to know enlightenment.
Supposedly, contained in this verse is the truth of the nature of suffering and how to remove its causes.
But there is a bit of a dilemma; the translation from Sanskrit to English is very tough.
The definition is actually not possible in just a couple of sentences…in fact, the entire phrase has to be broken down to be properly understood.
First, the nature of a mantra and what it means:
In the Buddhist tradition, special words are repeated over and over again until they begin to gather a certain “emptiness”.
This is not “emptiness” in the traditional sense where we imagine an experience of nothing…rather it is experiencing ourselves in the moment without the usual attachment of ego.
We become free or “empty” of everything but an inner awareness.
That form of enlightened awareness gives us the intuitive knowledge to save ourselves from suffering.
Interestingly, each of the 6 syllables has certain Sanskrit meanings that are important.
These oppose certain internal forces that cause suffering.
Om (ohm)- Om is the sound or “vibration” of the universe. This sound is the most important of all; but in the context of chanting and mantras, it is meant destroy attachments to ego and establish generosity.
Ma (mah)- Removes the attachment to jealousy and establishes ethics.
Ni (nee)- Removes the attachment to desire and establishes patience.
Pad (pahd)- Removes the attachment to prejudice and establishes perseverance.
Me (meh)- Removes the attachment to possessiveness and establishes concentration.
Hum (hum)- Removes the attachment to hatred and establishes wisdom.
