11.8.28 TARAH, GODDESS OF COMPASSION
The Goddess Tarah was slain in battle by Sycaerunax, the Father of Dragons, in 611 AF. Tarah was the goddess of Harmony and Compassion. She beckoned Her children gently along a path of greater understanding, the development of sentience, and harmony inside and out, always with the greater Good as highest consideration. Tarah's teachings used the metaphor of the Ripples - placing a pebble in just the right spot, to create ripples in just the right places. Her followers were expected to consider their options carefully, and to act deliberately, knowing whatever actions they take may have impacts far beyond the self. In all things, She taught that the result - the greater Good - is the most important thing, but that the ends and the means have a Harmony of their own that cannot be ignored. Tarah delighted in small things - snapdragons, chocolates, the smell of rain before a storm, the changing of the seasons. One of Her symbols was of concentric circles, denoting the Ripples. Another was a silver dolphin leaping against a deep blue background, representing the unbounded joy and contentment of a soul in complete Harmony with itself and its environment, and unhindered by selfish pride.
