Tara

White Tara

White Tara is associated with practices intended to lengthen one's life and to overcome life-threatening obstacles. Her special attributes are her seven eyes - the 'third eye' located on her forehead and the other four on the palms of her hands and soles of her feet - which allow her to look upon all beings with unobscured wisdom and heartfelt compassion.

Tara also embodies many of the qualities of feminine principle. She is known as the Mother of Mercy and Compassion. She is the source, the female aspect of the universe, which gives birth to warmth, compassion and relief from bad karma as experienced by ordinary beings in cyclic existence. She engenders, nourishes, smiles at the vitality of creation, and has sympathy for all beings as a mother does for her children. As Green Tara she offers succor and protection from all the unfortunate circumstances one can encounter within the samsaric world. As White Tara she expresses maternal compassion and offers healing to beings who are hurt or wounded, either physically or psychically.

We have had a healing touch practitioner work with Mr. Dragon to give him some comfort.
We are nearing the end of the journey to the stars and I am preparing to talk
Mr. Dragon on his way.

Right now, we are both enjoying a visit with his sister and DD.

Thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers.

Wishing you well.

Snap, I am a bit taken aback by your post. Love, love, love, touching, touching, touching are all you need both now. Words do not matter anymore on our way to the stars.
Stay strong, and happy about what you have experienced together on your mutual journey on the planet Earth.
I will burn a candle for both of you.
