Praise of Vajravarahi Tara

1  Homage to the Body of Tara,

great Sow (Varahi) of Emptiness and Compassion!

Homage to the Speech of Tara,

Perfection without words, thought or speaking!

Homage to the Mind of Tara,

the mind of immaculate Moon of Gnosis!

2  Moonlight dispelling samsara’s darkness

like an o’erpowering solar disk!

To Tara, endowed with the qualities of

Method and Wisdom, I bow forever.

3 You always love migrators like Your children,

and fix the three realms in the three Liberations.

Living in the Khadira Forest,

You save us strongly from the eight fears.

4  Tara, I pay homage to You.

In the Pure Land Abhirati

You show the form of Vajra-dakini,

Tara, homage and praise to You!

5  In th Pure Land Glorious

You show the form of Ratna-dakini,

Dispeller of migrators’ sickness of sorrow,

Tara, homage and praise to You!

6  In the Pure Land Sukhavati

You show the form of Padma-dakini,

Living in the state of Great Bliss,

Tara, homage and praise to You!

7  In the Pure Land of Visuddhi

You show the form of Karma-dakini,

Helping migrators with the four rites,

Tara, homage and praise to You!

8  In the Pure Land An-anta-madhya

You show the form of Paramita,

with th’ assembly of Buddhas of ten directions,

Tara, homage and praise to You!

9  In the Pure Land of the eight charnel grounds

You show the form of Vajra-varahi,

amidst a blazing mass of fire,

Tara, homage and praise to You!

The praise by the pandita Candrakirti is complete.

Translated from Tibetan by Martin Willson in “In Praise of Tara: Songs to the Saviouress”.
