  • Tara - The Mother of the World

    Greetings everyone,

    I mentioned in a prior thread that I believe Tara and Kuan Yin are the same manifestations of the Divine Mother. In fact, Tara is often regarded as the shakti or power of Avalokitesvara who shelters her devotees from all dangers of samsara.

    What's amazing is that Tara was well known and worshiped throughout the ancient world!

    Ireland

    The druids in ancient Ireland/Britain worshiped Tara as their mother goddess. The famous "Hill of Tara" bears the goddess' name.

    Rome

    The Romans worshiped Terra, the Mother of the Earth.

    Finland

    Babylonian

    China

    Worshiped as Kuan Yin

    India

    Worshiped as Tara, which means "star" in Sanskrit

    Cheyenne Native Americans

    Story of a star-woman falling to Earth to mate with the population to increase wisdom among the human race.


    Incredible.

    Best wishes,
