Jason Espada soothingly recites the Song of Longing for Tara prayer, relied on by millions as a daily practice. After the beautiful recitation — recommended to be recited twice a day — Hrishikesh Sonar chants the 21 Praises to Tara in a beautiful English chant! (Total listen time 20 minutes)
In Mahayana Buddhism, Green Tara is the Mother of all the Buddhas. She is the Buddha of the “heart.” Her practice releases us from all fears and dangers.
While all the Buddhas can be seen as Oneness and Omniscient — and therefore practicing one Buddha can be seen as practicing all Buddhas [pause x-strong] there is something precious, personal and wondrous about the Wisdom Compassion Buddha, Noble Green Tara.
The Song of Longing for Tara is a core prayer and practice, recited by millions for its benefits. Listen now, as Jason Espada recites the Song of Longing for Tara, and follow along with your own recitation using the script in the description. This song not only praises Tara, but it is also a teaching. Who is Tara? What are her benefits? Why is she special in modern times? Practice this twice a day, together with the 21 Praises to Tara to bring the blessings and protection of Mother Buddha Tara in to your life. At the end of Jason's recitation, listen on as Hrishikesh Sonar chants the 21 Praises to Tara in English.
