A Brief Sadhana of Green Tara

Revised and Translated by Guru Lin
Edited in Chinese by Disciple Boon Eng Loo

Do prostration three times to Gurus and the Triple Gem, then fold palms together and sincerely recite:

1. Namo Sakyamuni Buddha (three times)

2. Lineage Refuge Tree Supplication (three times)

Original Purity, oh, Patriarch Guru Chen!
Vajra Lotus, oh, Guru Lin!
The Right Dharma lineage of Manjusri and Guan Yin,
Harmonized wisdom and compassion to spread everywhere!

3. Praise to Green Tara (three times)

Compassionate tears of Guan Yin gathered the marrow of Mercy from all Buddhas
Dispelled devils by fearless laughter to guard Siddhartha's attainment of enlightenment
Rainbow appearance in Potala Cave rendered Guru Chen's personal realization
Universal salvation to all beings from all hindrances, indeed, the savior of us all

4. Supplication to Green Tara (three time)

Marrow of Mercy from all Buddhas, compassionate tears of Guan Yin,
Moisten and nourish to transform the stubborn and rigid beings
Dispelled devils through laughter, guard and help attainment of enlightenment,
Dharma practitioners seek and rely on Your Holy Mother's grace
Sacred Potala Cave amid sky and sea, rainbow body surrounded by tidal sounds,
When will this practitioner personally realize thus
Drifting from realm to realm in Samsara, floating up and down in waves of suffering
Only Your Holiness is capable of universal salvation

5. Chanting Heart Mantra of Green Tara (Repeat it for certain number of times as decided by the practitioner.)

Weng Da Lei Du Da Lei Du Lei Suo Ha

6. Dedication

A. Four Boundless Minds

May all beings have happiness and its causes!
May all beings be free from suffering and its causes!
May all beings be inseparable from the joy that is free from suffering!
May all beings be distant from discrimination and preference, and abide in universal renunciation!

B. Ten Soon Stanza

Soon break all doubts and be happy!
Soon meet all dakinis and work together!
Soon increase all practices and obtain fulfillment!
Soon apply all mercies and conquer devils!
Soon grasp supreme teachings and produce miracles!
Soon attain original Wisdom and have the ten powers!
Soon turn the wondrous Dharma Wheel by all means!
Soon purify the worldlings by wonderful speeches!
Soon illuminate the Dharmadhatu with the light of Dharma!
Soon show the Buddha realm to all sentient beings!

Auspicious Completion

Disciple Boon Eng offered below a brief Sadhana of Green Tara using my works and Guru Chen's work. I had revised it in the attached F1541 file. He also sent a beautiful image of Green Tara. It is also attached.

We praise to Tara first, and then make supplications.

May all beings attain Enlightenment soon!
