Tara, Giver of Joy and Peace Tara Mothers pray to you and children pray to you Merchants pray to you and travelers pray to you Doctors, and lawyers and judges pray to you the innocent pray to you and the guilty pray to you Students and scholars pray to you Artists pray to you the dull and the brilliant pray to you, the humble and the proud married people pray to you and single people pray to you those who are sick and those who are healthy pray to you healers pray to you and those with a loved one in need pray to you kings and street sweepers pray to you the living and the dying pray to you the wealthy and the destitute pray to you the young and the old, the high and the low all reach out their hands to you all turn to you, as their closest protector, guide and refuge, as their benefactress in times of need, and they turn to you in gratitude as their patroness in times of success All these prayers you hear and you respond in visible and in invisible ways - ways beyond the scope of ordinary conception Although you are the most exalted one, we run to you in total trust and confidence like a child to a parent going with total trust, like a favored one into the presence of an enlightened ruler we go to you, and rest we are sheltered by you cared for and protected And though your name can be said simply and your divine qualities can be so easily known, the depth of your wisdom, compassion, and activity, is such that lifetimes of study and practice, until we ourselves become more like you, are just a beginning, in truth and so our everyday appeals are for more simple things we ask: O Tara, Joy of the World, let your presence be more fully known by us clear away whatever obstacles there may be and let the light, comfort and inspiration that you are be known ever more fully by us now pacify suffering conditions and help us to live well encourage us to outdo what we thought was possible before stabilize whatever we have now of health, virtue, wisdom and good fortune, and increase, to meet our needs, whatever we may lack O Glorious Tara, hope of the world, to you we all pray, May your blessings be upon us all, so that we can, each one of us, achieve our aims, and peace, and fulfillment
