so here lately as i have been meditating on my deities. i noticed that in my Google feed and friend recommendations. Tara stuff has been popping up, so i was curious as to how i should approach it? i have meditated on my other deities(my path is personal but i include Tibetan Buddhism in it) so what should i do? i apologize if this sounds like a silly question or something.

I recommend you read all you can about Tara. There are a number of helpful and authoritative books on the subject. When you can, find a capable teacher and ask his or her for guidance. Here's one to start with:

http://www.amazon.com/Taras-Enlightened ... 1559392878

Of course it wouldn't hurt at all to learn some more about what Buddhism is about and how it works...

enjoy your practice

Tara is a sweetheart

Equanimity is the ground. Love is the moisture. Compassion is the seed. Bodhicitta is the result.

-Paraphrase of Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tsephel citing the Guhyasamaja Tantra

"All memories and thoughts are the union of emptiness and knowing, the Mind.
Without attachment, self-liberating, like a snake in a knot.
Through the qualities of meditating in that way,
Mental obscurations are purified and the dharmakaya is attained."

-Ra Lotsawa, All-pervading Melodious Drumbeats
