Le dialogue est la seule façon raisonnable et intelligente de résoudre les différents conflits d'intérêts, entre les hommes comme entre les nations. Promouvoir une culture de dialogue et de non-violence pour l'avenir de l'humanité est un devoir.

The Twenty-One Forms of Tara According to the Tradition of Lord Atisha

Issus du site http://www.preciousteaching.org
Introduction
Tara has 21 primary emanations which perform different activities such as paci­fication, increase and so forth. The different colors of these 21 Taras correspond to the 4 different types of enlightened activity:
Tara is the female Buddha of Enlightened Activity (Tib: trinley., of which there are 4 types: pacifying, increasing, overpowering and wrathful. Each of these is repre­sented by a different color:
White represents the Enlightened activity of pacifying, for example overcom­ing sickness, causes of untimely death and obstacles to success in one’s life or one’s practice.
Yellow represents the Enlightened activity of increasing the positive quali­ties conducive to a long life, peace, happiness and success in one’s Dharma practice.
Red represents the Enlightened activity of power, or overpowering external forces that cannot be tamed through the first two activities, for example, removing obstacles to sickness, untimely death, etc., and forcefully accumulat­ing conducive conditions for one’s Dharma practice.
Black represents the Enlightened activity of wrath, which involves using force­ful methods for accomplishing activities for Enlightened purposes that cannot be accomplished through other means.
Visualization
The main (green) Tara is seated upon a lotus arising from the waters of a lake, just as Tara is said to have arisen from the compassionate tears of Avalokiteshvara. Her right hand is in the mudra of supreme generosity indicating her ability to pro­vide beings with whatever they desire. Her left hand at her heart is in the mudra of bestowing refuge: her thumb and ring finger are pressed together to symbolise the united practice of method and wisdom, and the three remaining fingers are raised to symbolise the Three Jewels of Refuge – Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. In each hand she holds the stem of a blue utpala flower. Each flower consists of three blos­soms indicating that Tara, the embodiment of enlightened activities, is the Mother of the Buddhas of the past, present and future.
Tara is dressed in the silken robes of royalty. She wears rainbow colored stockings, a white half-blouse and various jeweled ornaments. These symbolise her mastery of the perfections of generosity, morality and so forth. The tiara fastened
in her black hair is adorned with jewels, the central one is a red ruby symbolic of Amitabha, her spiritual father and the head of her Buddha family.
She is seated in a distinctive posture, her left leg withdrawn to symbolise her renunciation of worldly passion and her right leg extended to show that she is always ready to arise and come to the aid of those who need her help.
With a warm compassionate gaze she looks down upon each sentient being as a mother regards her only child. Her emerald-green color — related to the wind element and hence to movement — signifies her ability to act swiftly and with­out delay to bring benefits to sentient beings.All 21 Taras have one face and two hands: in their right hands, upon the palm of their gift-bestowing gestures, they hold the flasks that accomplish their various active functions, and with their left hands they hold a lotus flower. They are seated with their right feet extended and their left drawn up, on thrones of lotus and moon, adorned with silks and all pre­cious ornaments, radiating forth measureless light, and surrounded on all sides by countless hosts of Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, high patron deities, dakinis, and protec­tors of the Law.
