Black Tara

The Immeasurable Feeling of the Black Tara is Repentance. Her organ is gallbladder. Her fundamental doctrine is the Adoption of Samaya Vows. Repentance is usually perceived as a necessary but unpleasant thing. A person works their way through repentance and then tries to avoid it in order not to remain in guilt. This approach is deeply flawed because Repentance is an Immeasurable Feeling. And like any other Immeasurable Feeling, it frees. When we experience other Immeasurable Feelings such as Loving Kindness, or Peace, we don’t feel this need to “get away” from…read more

She covers the entire cycle of energy and as its mistress, she sets it in motion (stomach receives energy of food). Her Infinite Feeling is Benevolence. The correct form of Benevolence towards all sentient beings is wanting them to wake up from the nightmare of…read more
