What the price is, matter the cost, we got to make it today.
Working in a place like this
Transfixed by a shadow on the wall
I stare at it
The world around me drops away
Replaced by worlds being created and destroyed by my imagination
“Tara protects and dispels both outer and inner obstacles. By reciting Tara’s mantra, it purifies misdeeds created by our body, speech and mind. It frees us from the lower realms, and it has the ability to dispel obstacles created by maras. Reciting the mantra will help us to generate an altruistic mind and to accumulate good merit. We pray that Tara may please bestow the blessings that all infinite sentient beings will enjoy long life, good health, prosperity and so on. And specifically, may obstacles, confusion of obscurations, and any untimely death be cleared by these blessings. May we quickly achieve the liberation of Buddhahood for the benefit of all sentient beings. May all the favorable conditions of the sentient beings in the world increase like the waxing moon. May they be quickly established into the Vajradhara state of enlightened mind. If this is not possible in this life, may Tara be our Yidam deity in both this life and next life, bestowing the blessings and may we never be separated for one moment until we are free from samsara.” – Drikung Kyobpa Choling
