Green Tara Saving from Eight Sufferings of Samsara

The first Dalai Lama Gendün Druppa (1391–1474) wrote that we can call on Green Tara to instantly save us from eight particular dangers, each of which represents a corresponding human mental problem:

Lions — pride; Wild elephants — delusion and ignorance; Forest fires — hatred; Snakes — jealousy; Robbers — wrong views, Including fanatical views; Prison — greed and miserliness; Floods — desire and attachment; demons — doubts caused by delusion.
