Tara is a prominent deity in Buddhism, as well as a goddess in Hinduism. Her iconic prayer is the 21 Tara mantra, to the 21 special activities embodied within the great Tara: pacifying, overpowering, increasing and fighting for righteousness. Each energy of Tara has a different color, reflecting the energy of each hue.

In Hinduism, the very name “Tara” means star, an infinitely beautiful power in the universe, capable of glowing within from an intense power, and self-combusting as well to make way for the new.
