How I see things, how I feel about myself and others.

This meditation is one of the most powerful

Are you ready to forgive, learn and move forward, despite what has happened in your past?

Because of what has happened in your past.

Mantra Meaning

One of my favourite yoga songs is Om Tare by Sacred Earth. I thought I would find out what it means and loved what I learnt.

It can be heard as we move and flow in my Heart Flow and Moon Flow Class

OM TARE TU TARE SOHA

It is the mantra for Green Tara the most famous female Tibetan Buddha

 In paintings she stretches out her right foot to step down and help any one who calls out to her or recites her Mantra.

She is seen as one of the first emancipated women.

The story goes that she was a devoted girl who prayed for hours and made many offerings to Buddha. But when her other male practitioners noticed her capacity they told her this was all useless unless she would pray for the next incarnation in a male body as this was the only way to become enlightened.

Green Tara had a deep insight that female and male were only labels and vowed to work for the benefit of all in a women’s body.

Green Tara protects humans from the eight inner fears which are pride, ignorance, anger, jealousy, wrong view, attachment, miserliness and deluded doubts.

I am not a Buddhist but I love the thought of listening, singing  and sometimes practicing yoga to her mantra knowing what it means.

Imagining her will help me to become more aware of my negative emotions and thought patterns and find happiness and peace. I am not alone...if I need help I can call on my inner self or my heart in the form of Green Tara. You might prefer to call on God, Allah, The Earth.

It sure feels nice to have her image and teachings in my mind.

Walk the Goddess path with me.

When I rest

keep walking.

Women, the earth needs you.

Freedom

A poem by rupi kaur

 

they convinced me

i only had a few good years left

before i was replaced by a girl younger than me

as though men yield power with age

but women grow into irrelevance

they can keep their lies

for i have just gotton started

i feel as though i just left the womb

my twenties are the warm-up

for what i am really about to do

wait till you see me in my thirties

now that will be a proper introduction

to the nasty. wild. women in me.

how can i leave before the party's started

rehearsals begin at forty

i ripen with age

i do not come with an expiry date

and now

the main event

curtains up at fifty

let's begin the show
