Thirteenth Tara

Tara Who Brings About Auspiciousness

(Tibetan: Drölma Yulle Gyaljema)

(Sanskrit: Tārā Ripu Cakra Vināśinī)

Tara Vinashini (for short) protects beings from violence and war, preventing destruction caused by anger and aggression, and returning beings to joy. Internally, she protects against negative forces both with and without form. Formless obstacles arise from negative emotions, thoughts, and mental projections that cloud our wisdom, potentially leading to internal and external harm.
