Longevity and Passive Defense

Blazing Light of Tara If ever there was a shortcut to enlightenment, it will be through the grace of the final Tara, Lhamo Ozer Chenma. Her light blasts away any lingering negative energies which may come in the form of the walking dead (rolangs or those who have misused mantras) or as yakshas (“harm givers”) which are a lot like …

A Balancing Act

Mountain-Dwelling Mendicant In saffron colors, dressed in scented leaves and bringing the fresh winds from mountains, the Tara Rito Loma Jonma comes to our side for healing of illness in several capacities. Her right eye is like the sun, left is the moon…contrasting energies of fire and coolness; one destroys, the other creates, in a harmony of the cosmos. Her …

Magickal Armor

The Umbrella of Tara Many of us in the pagan community also practice magick; which I spell with the infamous ‘k’ so as to differentiate between the stage magic of a prestidigitator and the enchantments/sorcery involved with witchcraft, including other mystical workings. Whilst most of the work done tends to be in alignment with healing and not harming others, there …

She Who Holds the Moon

By the Light of Tara There is something awesome and spellbinding about the moon, this is reflected in the multicultural mysteries and folklore as part of human experience. The lunar shine is somewhat watery in it’s ebbing and flowing, pulling parts of us from within and without ourselves. It is said in the East the spirit of the moon is …

The House of Tara

Protectress Against Robbers and Thieves Nothing leaves us more vulnerable than being robbed; knowing someone has been through your things materially or if they were a friend who exploited your giving nature with a good ol’ fashioned back-stab are a few ways this can happen. Either through physical or emotional violence, this Tara is Pagme Nonma, a fiery Lady who perpetuates …

Tara the Spell Slinger

Mother of Intentions Jealousies and ill will can come from outside ourselves. Often when we are on the right track to a profound knowledge or experience, there will be opposition in powerful force. Spells and curses do exist, both are a temptation into the easier route of awakening. Not that having the ability to use these tools is a BAD thing; …

Tara of Deep Peace

Purity in Wisdom When everything has finally become a puddle of sludge, there is only the nothingness of a blank canvas. We can break ourselves down with acceptance or fight it, but either way sometimes we have to hit ‘rock bottom’ before we bounce back up. Buddhism essentially teaches how through non-attachment we can keep from hitting that desperate point …

Wrathful Cupcakes

Tara as Mover and Shaker Often we think we’re on the ‘correct’ path, when really it’s just another supposed ‘short cut’ or easier means of achieving enlightenment. There are many ways in which we are misled; donating to a cause we believe to be just when secretly it is a laundering cover-up; supporting a candidate we think is genuine and …

Fiery Destruction for Peace

Tara Who Protects From War War is an inevitability in our world; humans have been fighting each other for as long as we have existed it seems. Whether one group fights another for resources such was water or land, or the fights break out in families among siblings…battle is almost as inherent in our experience as the potentiality for peace. …

Harmony Replenished with Auspiciousness

Tara as the Keeper of Balance Sometimes it is difficult to keep things in harmony; balancing both a spiritual life with the many roles we fulfill as parents, employees, students, etc. is one of the most difficult tasks many of us face. If we own a house we need to work to pay for it, but what is the TRUE …
