This charming amulet comprises a beautiful silver plated Tibetan Prayer Wheel featuring the Green Tara Mantra of OM TARE TUTARRE TURE SOHA on the green enamel of the spinnable cylinder.
Found all over Tibet and in areas influenced by Tibetan culture, the use of a Tibetan Prayer Wheel is an ancient and mystical practice that has long been popular with Buddhists in these areas for its ability to bless the environment, spread spiritual blessings and well being, transform bad luck to good luck, promote healing, increase compassion, and assist practitioners on their journeys to enlightenment.
The Goddess Green Tara, probably the most popular deity in the Tibetan pantheon, is the embodiment of all the Buddha’s miraculous enlightened activities, transcending times past, present, and future. Described as the Swift Liberator, she is famed for her speed in answering calls for help. With the swiftness of lightning, she assists in overcoming day-to-day problems, recover from illnesses, and can even save you from untimely death. She also brings success in business and careers. As a mother, she is the ultimate solace for all who seek comfort, help, and solutions to their problems. The path to enlightenment becomes so much smoother when we call on her blessings to guide us along the way.
OM TARE TUTARRE TURE SOHA, the mantra of Green Tara, is almost as popular as the six-syllable Om Mani Padme Hum of Avalokiteshvara. Chanting or meditating with her mantra and syllable will invoke her blessings and liberate one of all fears, remove obstacles, and facilitate good intentions for the world in general.
The meaning of the Tara mantra is greater than the words can express as words can only point rather vaguely in the direction of the meaning. A traditional explanation of the mantra is that it uses variations of the name Tara to represent three progressive stages of deliverance or salvation.
- Om is the cosmic sound that keeps our universe together.
- Tare represents deliverance from mundane suffering, liberation from the sufferings of samara.
- Tutare represents deliverance into the spiritual path conceived in terms of individual salvation, liberation from fear, external dangers, and internal delusions.
- Ture represents the culmination of the spiritual path in terms of deliverance into the altruistic path of universal salvation, the Bodhisattva path, the end of suffering, liberation from ignorance.
- Soha means “may the meaning of the mantra take root in my mind”.
Buddhists believe that each turn of the cylinder generates as much merit as reciting the mantras out loud. Quoting Lama Zopa, Rinpoche: “Just touching and turning a prayer wheel brings incredible purification and accumulates unbelievable merit.” Keeping this auspicious prayer wheel close to you is a wonderful way to bring the energy and positive benefits of the Green Tara Mantra wherever you may be.
