Tara Auspiciously Shining
Arya-mangalaloka-Tara, Tara Auspiciously Shining (Bkra shis snang ba’i Sgrol ma), who grants prosperity and brings about auspicious circumstances
Homage to her, whose crescent-moon tiara
And jeweled ornaments sparkle brilliantly,
Who from Amitabha atop her vast stream of hair,
Floods forth immense rays of light.
On a double lotus and moon, from A appears Yellow Tara with one face and eight arms. The right hands hold trident, hook, vajra and sword. The left hands hold a jewel at the heart, hook, club and flask. The lord of the type is Vairocana.
