Prayer: Om Tare Tuttare Ture Soha
One of the inspirations for the Transcriptions Series was the beauty of the written alphabets of ancient languages. The Sanskrit letters for Om Tare Tuttare are exquisitely beautiful.
I covered a small canvas with mulberry bark paper that I bought many, many years ago. For a few weeks I waited to see what prayer or mantra would come forth to be part of this unpainted canvas. Once that was clear and determined, I painted over the paper, repainted the book, and added the text.
Deciding on the layout
The following is the text that appears on the attached open book to explain the meaning of each word in the mantra:
- Om – the sacred sound representing the entire universe, past, present and future.
- Tare – salvation from suffering and mundane dangers.
- Tuttare – protection from fears and the deliverance into the spiritual path.
- Ture – fulfillment of our spiritual path. We want to develop all the positive qualities and purify all our negativities.
- Soha – “So be it.”
