Product Details

Praise

“While true knowledge of Mother Tara’s amplitude to aid spiritual accomplishment can only be found in the direct connection of a Buddhist practitioner to an authentic guru, an understanding of the broader historical context, literary evolution, and personal testimonies that underpin this tradition of practice prove a valuable asset to appreciate why she remains such a beloved figure in the Buddhist world. In this regard, Rachael Stevens is to be commended for her comprehensive and in-depth work on Red Tara, the particular form of Tara for magnetizing that originated in ancient India and flourished in the Sakya order and other lineages of practice in Tibet. I hope her richly researched book provides illumination for all those interested in this unique tradition of spiritual practice.”—Avikrita Vajra Sakya, author of Wake Up to What Matters

“The presentation of lineage origins, liturgical variations, and iconographic details assembled in Red Tara opens doors to her realm of enlightened emanations. From a decade of research into Indian, Tibetan, and Western sources, Rachael Stevens distills a well-organized wealth of knowledge that enhances not only intellectual understanding but also a deep sense of connectedness to past meditators who have mastered the wisdom and activities of the goddess.”—Chagdud Khadro, author of Red Tara Commentary

“Scholars of Buddhism will appreciate this thorough volume.”—Publishers Weekly

“Little has been written about [Tara’s] red-colored forms, a lacuna that Rachael Stevens fills in Red Tara . . . This is Tara as not just savior, but also trailblazer.”—Buddhadharma

“The thorough and fascinating culmination of a decade of research into Tara’s red form.”—Tricycle
