Dark Red Victorious Tara Practice – 6th Emanation of 21 Taras
This Sadhana Practice, is so Healing and Protective. It helps you access your deepest inner stories and samskaras.
In this Feminine Empowered Practice of Dark Red Victorious Tara we delve into The Vrajayana Tibetan Practice of calling upon the various emanations of the Compassionate and Uplifting 21 Tara Practices. This week we are investigating the Sixth Tara, Dark Red Victorious Tara.
Dark Red Victorious Tara comes to your aid when you are experiencing emotions in your body such as unease, fatigue, irritation, or apprehension. She helps as you start to decipher those obscure feelings as emotions—anger, sadness, trepidation. Your understanding allows you to monitor this procedure before you inadvertently transmute those interpretations into assumptions, decisions, or activities. So in other words, she keeps you from believing the old stories and patterns which run your life like a broken record. Reciting her Praise and Teachings, Making Offerings and Chanting her mantra is a special and transformative experience.
