Lyrics of the Mantra

|| Om Taare Tuttaare Ture Mama Aayu Punya Jnaana Puṣhtiṃ Kuru Svaahaa ||

Meaning of the Mantra

|| Om Taare Tuttaare Ture
Mama Aayu Punya Jnaana
Puṣhtiṃ Kuru Svaahaa ||
Meaning :
May I find blissful liberation,
May my life, my blessings, and my wisdom grow and grow.
For a more thorough explanation of the mantra, look below:
Tare : This is the vocative form of Tara, so it means “O Tara!” (The vocative form of a noun is where the person or thing is being addressed or called upon.)
Tu : Is an exclamation that can mean “Pray! I beg! I entreat!” and so “tuttare” means something like “I pray to you, O Tara,” “I entreat you, O Tara,” or “I beg you, O Tara.”
Tura : This is an adjective meaning “quick, willing, prompt.” As a noun, “tura would mean “swift one.” “Ture” would be the vocative form of the noun, and so “ture” would mean something like “O swift one!”
Mama : means “mine” and indicates that you’d like to possess these qualities of long life, merit, wisdom, happiness, etc. You can of course choose to wish these qualities for someone else — perhaps for a teacher or for a loved one who is ill.
Ayuh : is long life (as in Ayurvedic medicine).
Punya : means the merit that comes from living life ethically, and this merit is said to help one to live long and happily.
Jnana : is wisdom.
Pushtim : means wealth, abundance, or increase.
Kuru : The word kuru is a verb form meaning “do it!” or “make it so!
Svaha : is an exclamation meaning “hail” or “may blessings be upon” and is a common ending to Buddhist mantras. So after making the rather bold request of White Tara above, we end with an equally emphatic salutation.
