Tara Destroyer of Attachment

Arya-raga-nishudani-Tara, Tara Destroyer of Attachment (Chags pa ‘joms pa’i Sgrol ma)

Homage to her who smashes
The bodies of the enemies that imprison joy,
Illuminated by the awareness of HUNG,
Arranged within a mantra of ten syllables.

On an orange lotus and sun, from E appears Red Tara. Her right hand holds a trident at the heart, the left one, with forefinger raised, a tree with blossoms and fruit. She sits in the sativa posture. The lord of the type is Aksobya.
