Tara Who Bestows Supreme Powers
Arya-mara-mardaneshvari-Tara, Tara Who Bestows Supreme Powers (Dbang mchog ster ba’i Sgrol ma)
Homage to her, the swift fearsome one,
Who vanquishes the most tenacious of maras.
When she knits her brows on her lotus face,
She defeats all enemies, without exception.
On a stacked seat of red lotus, moon and sea-monster, from RE appears Yellow Tārā with one face and four arms. The first pair of hands hold a branch of an Asoka tree and a lotus. The other pair hold a jewel with the wish-granting gesture and a flask. The lord of the type is Amogasiddhi.
