Tara The Perfecter
Arya-parinishpanna-Tara, Tara the Perfecter (Dngos grub byung ba’i Sgrol ma)
Homage to her,endowed with the power to perfectly pacify
Through the arrangement of the three syllables of suchness.
The crowds of demons, zombies, and yakshas
Are suppressed by TURE, the supreme mother.
From HA appears a most excellent white bull, on top of which are lotus and moon. On this, from PHAT appears White Tara with three eyes, slightly wrathful. Her right hand holds a trident, the left one a pearl garland. She sits in the arch posture, with right leg extended, and wears a tiger-skin as a lower garment. The lord of the type is Ratnasambhava.
