Title Review

The book offers a commentary on the renowned The Tantra of Praise, the Twenty-One Homages to the Noble Taras, recounting stories of the goddess Tara and her miraculous activity and compiling the praises to the beloved goddess. It also contains a collection of supplications to the goddess from Indian and Tibetan scholars of the past. Each verse is translated into English and explained, using each word of the praise in an expanded context to clearly elucidate its potentially ambiguous meaning. The commentary also offers synonyms for words that appear in the verses of the praise. The book is profuse with endnotes that clarify obscure terms and phrases.
