This site has been launched as an act of devotion to Āryatārā, and to celebrate the completion of the new series of 21 Tārā thangkhas and the new translation of The 21 Praises to Tārā commissioned by Khenpo Migmar Tseten. Āryatārā (རྗེ་བཙུན་སྒྲོལ་མ་) is a female Buddha venerated by all Vajrayāna Buddhists worldwide. The preservation of these thangka arts is very important because there are many profound teachings, mindfulness meditation, and yoga practices associated with each of these thangkas.
This 21 Tara website is dedicated to Khenpo Lama Migmar’s late mother, Sonam Yudon, who passed away on Thanksgiving Day in 2010.
Mangalamkosha Publications is pleased to announce that Lama Migmar’s new book “Āryā Tārā Practice Manual” is now available for purchase. Please purchase either through Amazon or Createspace using one of the links below:
The Āryā Tārā Practice Manual provides a complete set of texts and instructions for the practice of the female Buddha, Tārā compiled by Lama Migmar from traditional sources. It includes the Praises to the Twenty-one Tārā, Tārā Sādhana and mantra practices, Tārā Gaṇacakra Offering, and Tārā Pūjā. This book also provides 22 color Tārā thangka pictures and paintings for visualization performed along with the mantra and mudra practices. These practices for accumulating merit and wisdom will guide us to realize Tārā’s awakened wisdom and compassion for ourselves. It is our hope that the following pages offer a window into the awakened state and inspire you in your own practice. May all sentient beings everywhere experience peace.
