 Green Tara Seichim


This system is similar to Seichim Reiki with the addition of special Tara symbols, as well as of chants and mantras and prayers to Green Tara. The energy of Green Tara is similar in feel to Isis Seichim but much more relaxing. It brings peace, harmony and balance.


It is said that, despite his having taken a vow before Amitabha Buddha to enable everyone without exception to achieve liberation from the endless round of rebirth, Chenrezig (Avalokiteshvara) became so discouraged at the untold numbers of sentient beings that he began to cry.  From his tear was formed Tara. The 21 Praises to Tara says: "On the face of Chenrezig, she is born from a
tear as a bud from a lotus" or "born from the opening corolla of the lotus face of the Lord of the triple world."

A different account is that, while Chenrezig emerged from one of the eyes of compassionate Buddha Amitabha, Tara came from the other. In her iconography, the association with the red Buddha, Amitabha, is indicated by a tiny image of him in her topknot.

White Tara is referred to as "Mother of all the Buddhas."  This is because she embodies the motivation that is compassion.  Her whiteness "Radiant as the eternal snows in all their glory" is indicative of the selflessness-the purity-of this compassion but especially the undifferentiated Truth of the Dharma. Her seven eyes stand for her perception of suffering that is apparent (the
two we normally have) that is psychological/spiritual (the one in her forehead) and that is inherent in activity (in her palms) and in what is usually considered as progress (in her soles.) In the past, many aeons ago, during the time of Buddha Dundubhisvara
(Drum-sound), in the Universe c
alled Manifold Light, there lived a princess by the name of Moon of Wisdom-knowledge. She was a very devoted disciple and would daily set out many offerings to the Buddha and His Sangha. Eventually she generated bodhicitta, the aspiration to attain Enlightenment and become a Buddha herself, in order to help all living beings. Some bhikshus came to know of this, and urged her to dedicate the merits she had created to be reborn as a male. However, the princess rejected this
advice, saying:


“ Here there is no man, there is no woman,

No self, no person, and no consciousness.

Labeling "male" or "female" has no essence,

But deceives the evil-minded world.”


She went on to make the following vow:

"There are many who desire Enlightenment in a man's body, but none who work for the benefit of sentient beings in the body of a woman. Therefore, until samsara is empty, I shall work for the benefit of sentient beings in a woman's body."

From that time onward, the princess dedicated herself to winning full and complete Enlightenment. Once she accomplished that goal, she came to be known as Tara, the Liberator.

There is another story regarding Tara which tells that Chenrezig (Kuan Yin, or Avalokiteshvara) had been working for a long time to help sentient beings. He had been able to help hundreds of thousands of beings become free from samsara, but then he checked and realized there were still so many more beings suffering in samsara. He began to cry, and from the pool formed by his tears a lotus arose and Tara appeared from the lotus, saying "Do not worry; I will help you." Thus Tara is associated with Chenrezig, as well as with Amitabha Buddha (she has a tiny image of Amitabha Buddha on her crown.)


Lama Zopa Rinpoche further explains that through practicing Tara, we can
obtain the following benefits:

a) We can create a great deal of merit

b) We can avoid a suffering rebirth in the next life

c) We can quickly attain Enlightenment

d) We receive initiation from millions of Buddhas

e) All our wishes can be fulfilled, e.g. it can help us with our health,
business, getting a job, having a child, etc.

f) It protects us from fear and dangers
