In Search Of Bhagavati Tara – Part 1

Hinduism, Shakta, Tantra, What is Hinduism
Source: Pragyata Mag Second in the list of the great Mahavidyas, the tantrik goddess, Tārā, is terrifying in appearance and yet is the one who saves, guides and protects. She ultimately helps her devotees to cross the ocean of duality. by Svechchachari (स्वेच्छाचारी)   Second in the list of Mahāvidyāḥ-s, Tārā, holds a special place of reverence among Tantra sadhakas both within the Hindu fold and Vajrayāna Buddhists. To the later group this form of the Goddess has ascended to a position of such ubiquitous authority that to many lay followers Tārā has become synonymous with Tibetan Buddhism. The word  Tārā or Tarini is derived from the root Sanskrita syllable “tar” which means to help cross over, as in the case of crossing an ocean, in this case symbolic of the ocean of samsara. Origi
