Next join your palms and say: Esteemed Noble Lady, together with your retinue, Consider me lovingly with your non-referential compassion! Please bless me that my wishes may be fully accomplished without any obstacles. Please cause the Buddha’s teachings to flourish and prosper. Please ensure that the doctrine-holders remain in harmony and live long. Please pacify all harmful hindrances. Please increase the activities of teachings and practice. Please pacify sickness, famine, and strife. Please increase glory and fortune connected to the Dharma. Please strengthen the power and influence of rulers who sustain the Dharma. Please ensure that all countries everywhere enjoy happiness. Temporarily and ultimately, please protect us from all fears, such as the eighteen terror, untimely death, Nightmares, bad omens, the sufferings of samsara, and the lower realms. Please increase longevity, merit, charisma, experience, and realization. Please ensure that non virtuous thoughts never arise. Please let the two types of bodhichitta effortlessly arise. Please ensure that all wishes be accomplished in accordance with the Dharma. From now until we accomplish the essence of enlightenment, so that we may become completely indivisible.

By the blessing of our becoming completely indivisible, I myself, appear in the form of Noble Tara – Visible yet devoid of inherent nature. Concentrate on the clear appearance and the pride of yourself being the Noble Lady, and recite the ten syllable mantra as much as you can.
Om Tare Tuttare Ture Soha : At the conclusion, say the Hundred Syllables (mantra). Om benza sato samaya Manu palaya Benza sato tenopa.

Om, Please benefit all sentient beings. Please grant us the appropriate siddhis, Though you depart to the Buddha realms, I implore you to return again! Benza mu, Uttering this, the invited deities depart.
Om, Please abide here together with this support, For as long as samsara endures, Please grant us health, longevity, prosperity, as well as all that is most excellent. Om sutra tishtha benzaye soha,
My own mind, having become inseparable from the deity, Abides in the natural state of dharmadhatu. Having said this, sustain the view of the essential nature. By this virtue, Having quickly accomplished Noble Tara, May I establish every single being. Without exception, in her state. Just like a wish fulfilling jewel and a sublime vase. You fulfill all wishes without difficulty. May there be auspiciousness that, based on your caring compassion, we may be never separate from you,
Esteemed Lady Tara, Victorious Ones, and your offspring.
Recite auspicious verses with prayers like this and toss flowers.
Secondly, at the time of your daily practice, it is good to have an image of the Noble Lady. If you cannot obtain an image, then it will suffice to visualize her. Prepare the mandala and offerings, and recite from the aforementioned:
“In the sky in front of me…”, and so forth, the verses of going for refuge, of generating bodhicitta, up until the consecration of the offerings. You don’t need to recite the general offerings to the Three Jewels, but continue with: “At the very instant of recollecting.
I, myself, manifest in the complete form of the Noble Esteemed Lady…”, and so forth, then recite the verses for the offerings, the mandala, and the praises three times, followed by seven recitations of the 21 Praises together with their benefits. At the end, if you like, continue with, “Esteemed Noble Lady, together with your retinue…”, and so forth. If you care to request the fulfillment of your wishes, do so, but it’s also permissible to omit this part. Next recite, “The front visualization melts into light …”, and so forth, do the mantra recitation, and confess your faults as mentioned previously. There is no need to ask the deity to depart, but continue with “The deity and my own mind…” and so forth, and complete the practice with dedicating the virtue and proclaiming auspiciousness.
Compassionate Noble Lady, Bhagawati, May my two obscurations, as well as those of all the infinite sentient beings, be purified, and may the two accumulations be swiftly actualized i beseech you to help us to gain perfect buddhahood! Until this is achieved, please ensure that we obtain, the happiness of devas and humans throughout all our lives.

Please help us to effortlessly. And spontaneously increase and expand, all the mundane and supramundane, Excellent auspicious goodness. Please enhance our diligence in practice and make the sacred Dharma flourish. Please ensure that, based on our practice, we will be able to behold your sublime countenance.
