Tara Yantra



In Hindu Tantrism, Tara is the second in this sacred circle and is known as the refining fire. She entered the circle of Mahavidyas from Buddhism where she is almost always known as a benevolent deity. In Hindu tantrism Tara is largely known for her fierce manifestations where she is seen as wild, unrestrained and dominant. As the refining fire, she is identified with the destructive but purifying fire that burns enslavement to the ego perspective and thus enables the transition from one form of existence to another.
