Chant of 21 Taras

This video is a chant praising the twenty-one Taras by Her Eminence Jamyang Sakya. She is the wife of His Holiness Dagchen Rinpoche, one of the leaders of the Sakya school of Tibetan Buddhism. Tara comes to us in 21 forms, each of whom is dedicated to help eliminate the suffering of all beings.

  1. Thank you for posting this. It’s fascinating and very inspirational. I hadn’t realised that Tara has 21 forms. I shall have to do some reading on this – presumably the different forms have different attributes and guide practitioners in different ways.

  2. Thanks for your comments. Tara has 21 forms in order to help beings in the best way possible. Some forms are peaceful; some are wrathful, depending on the situation. Dagmola’s chant is a standard one which is used by all the traditions of Tibetan Buddhism, not only the Sakyapa.
