In the Buddhist tradition, Tara is the feminine Buddha of compassion that comes to the rescue in difficult situations. "A woman's heart more tender male" - this aspect is particularly strongly manifested in those who see their mission in helping and saving the life and health: nurses, doctors, psychologists, and some women, a sense of personal responsibility for the welfare of others.

For those who want to learn how to better understand the needs of others, in tune with those who need help and care, there are practices that reveal and enhance this capacity: the heart center becomes the main place of perception of signals, which is felt as a special field of energy in the chest and hands. The archetype of Tara is endowed with a special life-giving force, magnetism and wisdom. In Anahata the quality of attention there is a gentle light emitted at a specific person, people or situation.

Exercises that develop the sensitivity of the hands, chest expanding. Meditation "Diamond in the Rose": Sit comfortably with your back straight.

The angry goddess, it can be found in different traditions, in particular, in Greece it was played by the Gorgon Medusa, Hecate and Medea, Ariadne, and many other women deceived or rejected. Kali - the dark and violent subsistence Parvati Shakti dark and destructive aspect of Shiva. Mother Goddess, a symbol of destruction. Kali destroys ignorance, maintains the world order, bless and dismiss those who seek to know God.
Kali independence and autonomy in decision-making. Its archetype allows you to fully feel the force. The woman in this image resembles Lilith, who refused to submit to Adam. In a rage, she was capable of destruction, but displaced by a long suppressed anger brings destruction herself. Therefore, "letting off steam", a woman is able to master his own strength, to transform it into energy for life and to remove barriers to further development.

There is a parable. Once there was a beautiful princess. Nobody could find no flaws in it, she was the epitome of beauty, grace and perfection. She fell in love with a prince and decided to marry her. He came to woo her. Belle gave her consent, but set one condition: "I'll be your wife will love, honor and obey, I will faithfully serve you, and you never will know me grief, and your life will be filled with joy and happiness. But promise me one thing: once a year, you'll let me go on my own for one night and never ask me where I'm going and what I'm doing. " The young man thought that this is not such a difficult condition and, of course, agreed. They got married, became king and queen and began to live in love and joy. The woman was the faithful companion of life for his men. She surrounded him with attention and affection, gave the warmth of your heart and tender love. She faithfully and honestly served him, their kingdom flourished, nothing clouded their lives, but as they agreed each year for one night the queen left the house without saying anything to her husband, and he did not ask where she spends this time . So they lived a long time, but a vague anxiety gradually beginning to master the King. And every time his wife left, this concern is increasingly grew stronger: "Where she spends time without me? What is he doing? Why can not I ask her about it? »
Finally, he decided to follow his wife. One night, when she silently left the house, he quietly went to her. He watched as she walked across the field, crossed the river and gone deep into the woods far away. There she hid behind the old stump. Then, approaching the stump, he saw how she threw off her clothes and turned into a snake, coiled, began to hiss and splash poison. Terrified, he cried out and discovered their presence. Snake saw him, approached him and said, "What have you done? Just one night you could not let me go, without having to worry about yourself. Is it not true, I have served you, did not I loved you? You did not know worries and sorrows with me, and in return I asked for myself only one night of the year. Despite the fact that I am happy with you, love our children and enjoy taking care of our citizens, and sometimes I get tired, irritated and infuriated, and not to show their feelings to others, I am going into the woods and get rid of them, expressing all that had accumulated in my soul for the whole year, for one day becoming a poisonous snake. And now, once you know my secret, I can not save all the irritation and I have to express it at the very moment when I feel it ... »

Since then, women are no longer hiding from the men to turn into a snake bite and poshipet. And men have forgotten what life with his beloved without worries and sorrows. And seeking its women, taking her as his wife, every man dreams of a life in paradise with beautiful, caring, perfect woman, but gets along with her snake that sometimes bites her man.
