Tara is a female tibetan goddess of love (somehow like Kuan Yin in China). Keep your eyes closed and support your sacral imagination by starting with prayers and bhakta-meditations in front of a tankha (Tib. religeous painting). Feel her golden body as yours, consisting merely of a shell made of light. The forehead is decorated with a diadem in the shape of the third eye. You are full of love and understanding and smiling. Now imagine your body of light to increase to the size of the room, to the size of the house and to the size of cosmos. Every living entity now is existing inside of you and you feel love to all beings. Stay in this cosmic state as long as possible. Cease meditation by decreasing your Tara body to the size of a pearl, which stays in your mystic heart as your great treasure.
