“By nature, the Noble Lady Tara is Prajnaparamita, the mother of all sublime beings. She took the form of a woman in order to liberate all sentient beings, and give them all the siddhis they desire. Practicing this sadhana or reading her praises has the quick and compassionate power to liberate one of the eight types of fears, and lead one to the ultimate state of omniscience.”
— His Holiness Sakya Trizin
