Yellow Tara Wealth Bumpa/Vase


The Yellow Tara Wealth Vase is in essence the Yellow Tara who is a manifestation of the Buddhas enlightenment activities. She bestows prosperity, harmony, health, abundance towards ones family and fulfills all wishes to those who have faith and respect towards the deity and recite her praises. If by remembering Yellow Tara one recites the praises two, three or seven times sincerely for the sake of oneself and others, then one will have fearlessness, all evils like spirits, epidemics and food and drink poison will be pacified, one will attain the destruction of the lower realms and all suffering will be eliminated. Those wishing wealth will attain it and those wishing a child will have one. Without obstruction all their wishes will be granted and every hindrance will be destroyed as it arises. The seven million conquering Buddhas will quickly grant them every empowerment and they will attain greatness and go forth to the ultimate state of supreme Buddhahood.
