Sapta Lochani Tara – The Seven Eyed Tara

White Tara is also known as Sapta Lochani Tara because of her seven eyes. The White Tara symbolizes perfect purity and is believed to represent Transcendent Wisdom, which secures everlasting bliss for its possessor. Her ability is to give the special gift of long life, but Sapta Lochani also has the immediate power to remove obstacles. White Tara or Sapta Lochani is the consort of Avalokiteshvara. In Tibet, Sapta Lochani is considered a form of the Green Tara, but in Mongolia, where the goddess is extremely popular, is looked upon as equal, if not superior, to the Green Tara.

Sapta Lochani is depicted seated in Vajraparyank Asana on a lotus seat. Her right hand is in the gesture of supreme giving, her boundless generosity that ensures eight Siddhis and supreme Enlightenment. Graceful and calm, her left hand holds blue lotus, the symbol of protection from all terrors and fears. White Tara or Sapta Lochani has seven eyes of Knowledge – three on her face, two on her palms of her hands, and two on the soles of feet. This form of Tara is very popular in Mongolia and Nepal. White Tara is popularly known as Sapta - Lochani Tara or Seven Eyed Tara. Her silk robes, scarves, coronet, earrings, necklaces, armbands, bracelets, anklets and belt sparkle in their celestial elegance.

In mantra recitation and meditation, the white syllable Tam (for Tara) appears in the heart, and lights emanate forth from it. The syllable Tam at the heart suddenly melts and reappears as a white, eight – spokes wheel that in nature is the wisdom symbolized by White Tara. The wheel has five rims of mantra – from all the letters and from the wisdom-wheel shines forth white lights. Devotee’s body is filled with the nectar of immortality, and white lights emanate from each pore of the body to form an aura, a span in radius around him. Meditating thus, white radiance accomplishes the activity of pacifying illness, evil spirits, negative karmic forces, mental obscurations and hindrances as well as the completion of the natural span of life. The ceremonies of Tara are an integral part of Karmapa rituals. Her mandalas are worshipped from the third to ninth of every month. On auspicious days there are special services to White Tara.
