    One of the most popular and effective practices is that of using Tara's mantra, with or without visualization. Here is a long video of the mantra sung in varying lovely rhythms:

    Nice!

    Do you practice any Tara Sadhana?

    Yes, many years ago went to Green Tara initiation event. So I use this mantra as part of my feeble cultivation.

    Interesting! What's your understanding, is it necessary to receive empowerment before attempting certain visualizations?

    Probably better results will occur, but better to talk to a Lama or Guru experienced in the sadhana you wish to use.

    Simply reciting, writing out or reading aloud the Tara mantra in the video needs no permission. As always however, sincerity, focus, regular practice and altruistic motivation is the key to benefitting oneself & others.
