Tara Summoner of Beings
Arya-jagadvashi-Tara, Tara Summoner of Beings (‘Gro ba’i gugs pa’am phongs pa sel ba’i Sgrol ma)
Homage to her who can summon forth
The assembly of all earth’s protectors.
By the wrathful quake of the HUNG in her frown,
She completely liberates all destitute beings.
On a lotus and sun seat, from HA appears Black Tara, very fierce. Her right hand holds a hook that summons the eight planets, her left a hook that dispels misfortune. She is in the alidha posture. The lord of the type is Ratnasambhava.
