Quietly sitting, focused within, White Tara emanates a dynamic calm, a scintillating power, that shifts your perspective and so then your life. She gives liberation—from the monsters in our minds, and the fears and failures of the heart’s wisdom to overcome our human, shadow tendencies. Again and again, in a continuous stream, her intention to liberate us from the true disease—of ignorance of who we really are, and what the world is—persists. If you can connect to that stream and flow with it, you will rise above your doubts and insecurities, worries and problems, and live a long and happy life.
Her right hand rests on her knee, open in the mudra of supreme giving. Her left hand, poised in front of her heart, forms the mudra of protection and fearlessness.
Laura Santi began her working life as a graphic designer in 1981 before the time of computers, when art was done by hand. She moved into the Movement Center Ashram which teaches tantric practice, following two lineages received through Sri Saraswati Swami Chetanananda and Lama Tsering Wangdu Rinpoche. Switching careers, she practiced acupuncture for 23 years, incorporating the silent version of Chöd in her practice. She returned to the arts in 2001, and now writes, and paints Buddhist and Hindu deities.
