Green Tara Empowerment & Retreat in Canada Tara, the Mother of all Buddhas, called the Swift Liberator, vowed to work for the benefit of sentient beings in female form until the end of samsara. Each of the 21 major forms of Tara offers a feminine attribute of ultimate benefit to all who ask for her assistance. She offers protection from fear and the obstacles of daily life both large and small.
Tara has also been said to be born from the tears of Avalokiteshvara when he despaired of being able to liberate all beings in samsara. She vowed to always assist him in his great compassionate activity.
