This is an introduction into a short version of White Tara practice that Lama Sönam has received from Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche. This short 4 page text makes it possible to practice White Tara without much ritual and time as a regular meditation-practice.

White Tara is suitable to be practiced as a meditation-deity, not only for female but also for male practitioners. For women it provides a female picture of the the Buddha as an ideal for awakening, for men it helps to perceive the female aspect of Buddha-mind within themselves.
White Tara combines wisdom and compassion and she enhances one’s vital energies, hence she is called the „Goddess of Longevity“. She is also considered to be a protective deity averting dangers and untimely death. Although in essence she is identical with Green Tara, she is representing a somewhat different energy. She is even more peaceful and kind. The veneration of White Tara goes far back into ages before the time of the Buddha. Here we will be familiarized with a very archaic practice of the Buddha’s female aspect. She is also considered to be the female equivalent of the Bodhisattva of compassion (Avalokiteshvara/Chenresig).
