Victorious One of Ushnisha Who Accomplishes Immortality

OM TARE TUTTARE TURE AYUR DATE BHRUM SVAHA

TSUGTOR NAMGYALMA is peaceful and golden yellow in color. She emanates from the crown chakra of the Buddha as Prajnaparamita. She is victorious over all non-virtue and afflictive emotions. Upon her utpala flower is a vase of immortality that radiates light in the ten directions. This light transforms the radiant essence of samsara and nirvana into nectar that fills her vase.

Homage To Tara RIGJÉ LHAMO (KURUKULLÉ)

Magnetizing Goddess of Vedic Knowledge

OM TARE TUTTARE TURE KURU KULLE NRI DZA SVAHA

RIGJÉ LHAMO is semi-wrathful and red in color. The mantra TUTTARE blazes with rainbow light. Its sound magnetizes and conquers through the power arising from the union of emptiness and compassion. Upon her utpala flower is a bow and arrow poised to shoot sharp rays of light that destroy arrogant pride. She effortlessly accomplishes the four enlightened actions: pacifying, enriching, magnetizing, and subduing.

Homage To Tara JIGJÉ CHENMO

Great Terrifying Lady Who Completely Destroys Negativity

OM TARE TUTTARE TURE SARVA BIGHNEN BAM HUNG PHAT SVAHA

JIGJÉ CHENMO is wrathful and dark red in color. She is worshipped and praised by all, and her power subdues all negative forces. Upon her utpala flower is an indestructible phurba, a ritual dagger that subdues negativity, surrounded by blazing lassoes of flames and sparks. This turbulent fire and its natural sound, HUNG, splits the heads of demons and obstructing spirits who cause delusion, insanity, and memory loss, rendering them unconscious in the state of suchness, never to rise again.
