Green Tara "The Swift Liberator" is a well loved Yidam. Many countless Kalpas ago, Avalokiteshvara, the embodiment of the perfect compassion of all Buddhas, took up the mission to liberate all sentient beings, without exception, from all forms of suffering and dissatisfaction. Tara is commonly believed to manifest from the tears of Avalokiteshvara to fulfill his mission to liberate sentient beings.


Since then, the noble Tara had manifested to 21 Taras to protect sentient beings from Samsaric suffering, particularly the 8 major and 16 minor fears. Buddha Shakyamuni introduced the teachings of Tara in the Sutra and Tantra, and specially emphasized "In praise of Tara", which was composed by Buddha Vairocana. Lord Buddha also mentioned that if one recites the "21 homages" two, three, or seven times, one would overcome all major and minor fears and be protected from all kinds of natural disasters and humanly created disasters.


The original scared Text known as Gongter Drolma Zabtiq was revealed by the yogi and terton, Chokgyur Lingpa, an emanation of the great Indian guru, Padmasambhava (Guru Rinpoche). This scared Text was then offered to Jyamyang Khentse Wangpo and has been preserved until today, losing none of its original impact and fervour. It is being practiced by both Kagyu and Nyingma practitioners. Many great practitioners from India and Tibet who practiced Green Tara have overcomed every obstacle and achieved the supreme qualities of Buddha. The benefit of this practice is immeasurable.
