Homage To Tara JIGTEN SUMLÉ GYALMA

Victorious Over the Three Worlds, She Who Overpowers the Universe

OM TARE TUTTARE TURE LOKA PASHAM KURU SVAHA

JIGTEN SUMLÉ GYALMA is peaceful and red in color. Rainbow light emanates from her body and the victory banner upon her utpala flower, overpowering all the gods of the desire realm. She brings supreme joy to all beings. The mantra of her speech, endowed with the eight modes of laughter − HA HAA, HI HII, HE HAI, HO HAU − empowers all beings, setting them on the path of liberation.
