“The 21 Praises of Tara” is one of the key pieces of the Green Tara long sadhana. Each praise describes a different aspect of Tara, who is the feminine yidam of compassionate action.  Learn more about each of these different aspects to understand how compassion and protection can be shown when different obstacles arise.
