That is the matra to be recited to invoke the presence, grace and protection of Green Tārā.

Familiarize yourself with the mantra. It is easy because the mantra is highly syllabic. Play the YouTube video. If you want to run an indefinite extended play, right-click on the video and select the “Loop” item in the menu. This will allow you to play the music video over and over again until you manually stop the playback.

Chant the mantra softly or follow it internally in your mind in silence, whichever feels comfortable or natural to you. Make sure you flow with the music and reverberate to the rhythm. A complete formal recitation consists of 108 repetitions of the mantra. This corresponds to the number of beads in a Buddhist mala (rosary) or full string of prayer beads.

Gently close your eyes either at the beginning of the recitation or sometime after a few repetitions of the mantra. Lightly sway your upper body or head to the lilt of the mantra recitation if you feel like doing so. Stay mindfully with the mantra recitation. Let the mantra reverberate in you and let it resonate in you however way it wishes to do so. Green Tārā’s energetic presence will permeate your mind and being you her grace and peace.

Buddhist Depiction of Green Tārā

Green Tārā is an important figure in Buddhism. She appears as a female bodhisattva in Mahayana Buddhism, and as a female Buddha in Vajrayana Buddhism. She is known as the “mother of liberation,” and represents the virtues of success in work and achievements.  She is a meditation deity worshiped by practitioners of the Tibetan branch of Vajrayana (Diamond Vehicle or School) Buddhism to develop certain inner qualities and to understand outer, inner and secret teachings such as karuṇā (compassion), mettā (loving-kindness), and shunyata or śūnyatā (emptiness).

Within Tibetan Buddhism, Tārā is regarded as a bodhisattva of compassion and action. She is the female aspect of Avalokiteśvara and in some origin stories she comes from his tears: Tārā is also known as a saviouress, as a heavenly deity who hears the cries of beings experiencing misery in saṃsāra.

Whether the Tārā figure originated as a Buddhist or Hindu goddess is unclear and remains a source of inquiry among scholars.
