Tara Mantra

For many years, I have loved the Tara mantra.  In fact, I took the 21 Praises of Tara training with Prema Desara.  It's a mantra I often sing during meditation, or when I'm stringing prayer beads.  A few weeks ago I attended a Dances of Universal Peace retreat and learned a new-to-me tune for the Tara Mantra, especially for the Fierce Compassion aspect of the goddess. 

I recorded the mantra so that I wouldn't forget it, and several people have asked to hear it.  So, I'm going to post it here.

If you are unfamiliar with the mantra, the words are Om Tare, Tuttare, Ture Svaha.

Weed Walk with Sarah Tomorrow Morning!

Thinking that I'll take my herbal apprentices on an informal weed walk tomorrow. If you'd like to join us, we'll meet at the parking lot for Kiwanis Pavilion 21 in the Lancaster County Park at 10:30. Cost will be $10. Bring a notebook and camera if you are inclined.
