A Short Sadhana of the Golden-Yellow Tara of Prosperity

Taking Refuge and Generating Bodhichitta

To the Enlightened Ones, the Dharma, and the Spiritual Community Until Enlightenment I go for refuge. By the spiritual energy of this practice May I attain Enlightenment for the benefit of all.

(3x)

Visualizing the Merit Field

Light shines from a moon disc at my heart, inviting Golden Tara whose crown is adorned by the Guru appearing as Amitabha, surrounded by the host of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas.

Presenting Outer offerings to the Merit Field

OM ARYA TARA SAPARIWARA ARGHAM PRATICCHA HUM SVAHA OM ARYA TARA SAPARIWARA PADYAM PRATICCHA HUM SVAHA OM ARYA TARA SAPARIWARA PUSHPE PRATICCHA HUM SVAHA OM ARYA TARA SAPARIWARA DHUPE PRATICCHA HUM SVAHA OM ARYA TARA SAPARIWARA ALOKE PRATICCHA HUM SVAHA OM ARYA TARA SAPARIWARA GANDHE PRATICCHA HUM SVAHA OM ARYA TARA SAPARIWARA NAIVINDYA PRATICCHA HUM SVAHA OM ARYA TARA SAPARIWARA SHABDA PRATICCHA HUM SVAHA

The Seven Limb Prayer

I prostrate and make offerings to the Three Supreme Jewels;

I confess all non-virtuous actions;

I rejoice in the virtues of others;

I request the turning of the wheel of Dharma;

I ask the gurus not to enter Nirvana;

I dedicate all virtues to the cause of Enlightenment for all sentient beings.

Meditating on the Four Immeasurable Attitudes

May all beings have happiness and its causes. May they never have suffering or its causes. May they constantly dwell in joy transcending sorrow. May they dwell in equal love for both near and far.

Self-generation as Golden Tara

OM SVABHAVA SHUDDHA SARVA DHARMA SVABHAVA SHUDDHO HAM All phenomena are empty of inherent existence.

Everything becomes empty. From within the sphere of emptiness there appears the syllable PAM P. This transforms into a lotus bearing the syllable AH A. AH A transforms into a radiantly white moon- like cushion that covers the stamen of the lotus. Above this is the golden syllable TAM T , the sound of which is the resonance of the ultimate nature of my own mind.

Lights radiate forth from the TAM T , delighting all Enlightened beings and fulfilling the needs of all living beings.

From this Tam T , I instantly transform into holy Golden Tara, whose mind is beyond samsara. My body is golden in colour, and my face reflects a warmly serene smile.

My right hand is in the mudra of Supreme Generosity and holds a prosperity vase. My left hand is in the mudra of Bestowing Refuge. The thumb and ring finger of my left hand hold the stem of an utpala flower that opens into a blossom above my left shoulder.

I am clothed in silken garments and am adorned by precious ornaments.

I sit in the heroine posture.

My face is serene yet vivacious. Having attained immortality, I have an OM Ò at my crown chakra, AH A at my throat chakra, and HUM I at my heart chakra.

Inviting the Initiation Deities

Light shines from my heart, inviting the Initiation Deities from their natural abodes.

OM VAJRA SAMAJAH JAH HUM BAM HO

Granting Initiaton and Adorning the Crown

I request all the Tathagatas:

Please bestow the empowerment upon me.

The Initiation Deities reply:

Just as all the Tathagatas granted ablution At the moment of Buddha’s birth Likewise do we now grant ablution With the pure nectar of the gods.

OM SARVA TATHAGATA ABHISHEKATA SAMAYA SHRIYE HUM

A Short Sadhana of the Golden-Yellow Tara of Prosperity

As the mantra is recited, they grant the initiation, completely filling my body with nectar and purifying me of stains. The excess nectar flowing on my crown transforms into Amitabha Buddha who becomes my crown ornament.

Praise to Oneself as Golden Tara

Homage to you who are able to summon All the directional guardians and their retinues. Frowning and shaking, with the letter HUM I, You rescue all from their misfortune.

Presenting Outer Offerings to Oneself as Golden Tara

OM ARYA TARA SAPARIWARA ARGHAM PRATICCHA HUM SVAHA OM ARYA TARA SAPARIWARA PADYAM PRATICCHA HUM SVAHA OM ARYA TARA SAPARIWARA PUSHPE PRATICCHA HUM SVAHA OM ARYA TARA SAPARIWARA DHUPE PRATICCHA HUM SVAHA OM ARYA TARA SAPARIWARA ALOKE PRATICCHA HUM SVAHA OM ARYA TARA SAPARIWARA GANDHE PRATICCHA HUM SVAHA OM ARYA TARA SAPARIWARA NAIVINDYA PRATICCHA HUM SVAHA OM ARYA TARA SAPARIWARA SHABDA PRATICCHA HUM SVAHA

The Seven Limb Prayer

I make each and every offering,

Both actually performed and mentally transformed;

I declare every non-virtuous action since beginningless time;

I rejoice in the virtues of all holy and ordinary beings. Please, Guru, remain as our guide through samsara, And turn the wheel of Dharma for all sentient beings.

I dedicate my own virtues and those of others To cultivate the Enlightenment.

Visualization during the Mantra Recitation

Light in the form of iron hooks radiates in the ten directions from the TAM T letter , the mantra on the moon disc at my heart and from the prosperity vase. The light brings back good fortune, prosperity from the three realms 1 and blessings from the Pure Lands of the Buddhas.

Requests to Golden Tara

Divine, Compassionate, Transcendental Mother, Help me and all sentient beings purify in our mind streams All interferences to liberation and omniscience. Help us to realise the two paths of method and wisdom, And cultivate the awakened mind of a Buddha. Help me find divine bliss and human happiness As I cultivate omniscience on this awakening path. Please help me to overcome all obstacles and hindrances, Such as harmful spirits causing inauspicious omens, bad dreams, The eight fears, plagues, sickness, and untimely death. Please support my well-being, my perfections, And auspicious qualities so that they increase and flower. Guide me with your blessings as I devote myself With diligence, cultivating the awakening mind Through this most sacred Dharma. As I undertake this practice with mindfulness To see without duality your sublime face, Help me to ripen my insight of emptiness and dependent-arising As I methodically cultivate the awakening mind. In the presence of Buddha Amitabha And the joyous, noble Mandala of the Budhha Bless me with your divine inspiration and foresight – May I take rebirth from a pure, beautiful lotus With the awakened mind of Golden Tara. By the force of my offerings and requests to you. Please help remove all diseases, poverty, conflicts, and quarrels. Please make the Dharma and all that’s auspicious increase Throughout the lands and directions in our midst and far away.

Dedication Prayers

By the meritorious energy of my meditation on Golden Tara, The beyond-samsara goddess, May all countless sentient beings Be led by the energy of the Enlightened Ones Into Buddhahood.

Auspicious Prayers

May there be the auspiciousness of Golden Tara From whom I have received blessings in previous lives. Appearing in your golden-coloured aspect, With one face and two hands, Holding a prosperity vase in your right hand and an uptala flower in your left hand, You are the embodiment of the Buddhas of the three times.
