TĀRĀ is a non-profit international association created for the empowerment of women worldwide through the study of Kundalini (or Shakti). Kundalini is an important concept in both Yoga and Śhaiva Tantra, where it is believed to be a force or power associated with the divine feminine. The goddess Shakti (or Devī), represents feminine power, strength, force, and capacity in Hinduism

TĀRĀ is the venerable mother of liberation in Buddhism. 

TĀRĀ is created to promote the empowerment of women through the understanding of their inner feminine power regardless their religious beliefs. It actively encourages a lifestyle that is non-sectarian, universal and unconnected to rituals, through the study and promotion of arts, culture, sport, and wellness with the active pursuit of activities, choices and lifestyles that lead to a state of holistic health and wellbeing.

TĀRĀ is thus created for the founding of scholarships and research travel grants for students, artists and scholars of South Asian countries such as Nepal and India.

TĀRĀ is proud to present

"There is a true feminist movement in Buddhism that relates to the goddess Tārā. Following her cultivation of bodhicitta, the bodhisattva's motivation, she looked upon the situation of those striving towards full awakening and she felt that there were too few people who attained Buddhahood as women. So she vowed, 'I have developed bodhicitta as a woman. For all my lifetimes along the path I vow to be born as a woman, and in my final lifetime when I attain Buddhahood, then, too, I will be a woman.'"

– Dalai Lama
