Discovering Tara

When you find your god you find yourself.

I remember never feeling a part of a “religion” because the way I saw spirituality wasn’t being reflected back to me. When I discovered Tara in the crystal shop I used to work, everything came into clarity.

Her Beginning

Before Tara became a Buddha, she was a princess names Wisdom Moon, who devoted her time to a deep meditation practice. When she was close to reaching enlightenment the monks told her that she must come back as a man in order to reach Buddhahood. She told them, “Those who wish to attain supreme enlightenment in a man’s body are many, but those who wish to serve the aims of beings in a woman’s body are few indeed; therefore may I, until this world is emptied out, work for the benefit of sentient beings in a woman’s body.” It is with her vow that she became Tara the Liberator, the first Buddhist feminist.

Her Symbolism

Tara is made of light, her name meaning star. She sits on a blossoming lotus, radiating compassion. She is a protector, the mother of all Buddhas, a manifestation of wisdom and swift action.

Her posture is relaxed, open, and loving. Her right foot is outstretched showing her readiness to take action while her left foot is tucked in, indicating that she has full control over her inner energies. One foot in the world and one foot in meditation.

Tara holds close to herself a blue lotus, representing the three realms: past, present, and future. On her body is OM at her crown chakra, AH at her throat, and HUM at her heart chakra.

Devotion To Her

  • Mantra: Om Tare Tuttare Ture Soha
  • Crystals: blue tara quartz, celestite rose quartz, green fluorite, labradorite
  • Plant: lotus
  • Moon Phase: crescent moon

Tara Goddess Tea:

Release. Rest. Nourish. Send devotion inward with this Tara Goddess Tea. You are the universe, a vibrant light within the galaxy of stars. You are the earth. An elemental spirit. Like the waters, you ebb and flow with the tides of life. Reflecting and deepening with each breathing wave. Pair this earth and air energy tea with a moss agate crystal, this brew sends love to your wild soul.

  • 1 tsp Green Tea
  • ½ tsp Lemongrass
  • ½ tsp Peppermint
  • ½ tsp Local Honey

Blood Full Moon

On this October night, the moon reigns with a red glow. Touched with the fiery energy and creative spirit of Aries. The full blood moon brings forth manifestation, rebirth, and crone wisdom. 

Darkness beacons us to sit with our emotions, to dive deeper inward. Refection takes place, our intuitive presence becomes heightened. Nature is beginning to travel back into the warm earth, to begin its transition into hibernation and healing. We must do the same. Nurture our spirits within the womb of Gaia. Blanket our bodies in the roots of who we are to find comfort in the self. 

The Blood Moon reminds us that our bodies bleed with purpose, we cycle with the lunar energy. We are transformed each month, shedding part of ourselves that no longer suit us. Feminine. Goddess. Earth. We flow into the cyclical motions of nature, cosmic, we evolve enlightened. 

Blood Moon Tea

  • 1 tsp Black Tea
  • ½ tsp Cinnamon Powder
  • ½ Licorice Root
  • 1 Pinch Ginger
