Songs of Tara - Devotional Music to the Goddess of Liberation CD by Various Artists offers world music, Tibetan music, mantras and chants for yoga and devotion, featuring tracks from His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Her Eminence Jamyang Sakya, Dechen Shak-Dagsay, Nawang Khechog, Deva Premal, and many more.
Songs of Tara is a meditative collection of mantras, chants and praises to the female Buddha and protectress of the Tibetan people, the "Mother of all Buddhas," "She Who Liberates" - a compassionate bodhisattva who delivers us from fear and protects us from harm, the "noble Lady Tara," sung from both traditional and contemporary artists. Now Tibetan spiritual leaders and devotional artists come together in celebration to help us connect to the energy of this swift and heroic goddess.
Songs of Tara - Devotional Music to the Goddess of Liberation includes modern and traditional devotions to Green Tara, who leaps to our aid when we are in need, and White Tara, who offers longevity so we may have more time to serve others in this world, and the complete Tibetan Homage to the 21 Taras.
Tibetans of all kinds: monks, nuns, farmers, nomads, men women and children, pray and sing to Tara for speedy help in time of need. Known in Tibet as “Drolma,” “She Who Liberates,” she is called “swift and heroic,” liberating her devotees from fears of all kinds and offering protection from harm. Tara also has roots as a Hindu goddess, and likely pre-dates Buddhism. While Tara has 21 emanations in both wrathful and peaceful forms, the most beloved are Green Tara, who sits with one foot extended, ready to leap up to help those in need, and White Tara, who is prayed to for long life.
Mantras dedicated to both of these forms of Tara are included on Songs of Tara - Devotional Music to the Goddess of Liberation. The record includes both modern and traditional treatments of the mantras, from artists such as Deva Premal, Choying Drolma, Wah! and Jamyang Sakya (female head of the Tibetan Buddhist Sakya lineage) Bhakta, and more.
