Born on 1975 in Jhapa , Nepal, in a religious and simple family, Tara Gurumaa early life was spent in an spiritual and religious environment.

At a very early age, Tara Guruma left her home and settled her life at a temple. There she joined the company of nuns and sage and learnt sanskrit language and religious scriptures. Few years later, in search of deeper knowledge and spiritual enlightment, she left nepal and went to vrindaban in India and learned bhagavatacharya.  As a girl Tara ghimirestruggled hard and experienced doubt, loneliness and the temptation to return to the comfort of home life. After facing hard days and struggling life, she got acharya degree in Bhagawata course.

In 1990, she returned back to nepal and started giving spiritual discourse based on Interpretation of the holy scripture, The ShrimadBhagwataPurana. At the very beginning, she became successful in attracting the mass devotees. She was given special invitation by different societies, publics and devotees and religious institutions to deliver her spiritual message which is popularly known as ShrimadBhagavataMahapurana.

An embodiment of love, grace, compassion and empowered with wisdom of the times, forward thinking and dynamic in her approach and outlook, Tara Gurumaa stands as a constant source of inspiration for all. She is a source of light to those looking for a spiritual answer, peace, wisdom and unconditional love.

A pious and compassionate woman, who instilled in her a deep commitment to social service,she took on the title of "Gurumaa" or “spiritual Master” upon making her final vows and thus became popularly  known as Tara Gurumaa.

She travelled nooks and corner of the country and started spreading the message of peace, love, non-violence and universal brotherhood.

She visited several places spreading her spiritual nectar. She was sad to notice that social evils and superstitions were still in practiced in many societies.   She fought against such evils through her spiritual programs.  She spoke strictly against gender discrimination, caste discrimination and dowry system. She said to public, “If we want a peaceful and developed society than we should rise above these social evils and superstitions”.

In effort to eliminate Caste system, she spoke to public giving reference to BhagawataPurana, that even a low caste who has deep faith and devotion is dearer to god than a Brahmin without faith. In Bhagavata, devotees of Krishna include those from lower castes: Prahlad, considered the greatest of devotees, is the son of demon king and of low birth; the Gopis are uneducated wives of herdsman, yet they are very close to Krishna. Therefore people become great not by birth but by their actions which should be holy and directed towards the service to the humanity.

Similarly she also struggled against Gender Discrimination. She strongly opposes the inequalities towards women. She says that “Dowry system should be completely removed and each woman should be given an opportunity to education as far as possible”. She strongly highlights the notion that “Women can and should make a difference in the world”.

On the other hand, she promotes people to lead a simple life free from alcohol and drugs and go for vegetarianism as far as possible. For this she gave so many instances from BhagawataPurana as how such life will bring peace and satisfaction and will be the cause for the liberation of the soul. Thus moved by her wordsthousands of devotees changed their lives by giving up smoking, alcohol and adopting a simple vegetarian life and adopted her as spiritual guru for lifetime.

Besides, herseven-day spiritual program has been a medium for the public to raise donations needed for public construction like road, educational institutions, health centers and many more.
