    EIGHT DANGERS AND FEARS: This is meant to include all dangers, poisons and fears, but is traditionally described in commentaries as:  lions (pride), wild elephants (ignorance), fire (anger), snakes (jealousy), floods (attachment), imprisonment (miserliness), thieves (wrong views) and cannibals (doubt).

    Lama Zopa Rinpoche describes her:

    “At the heart her fingers, Adorn her with Three Jewel mudra! Light-ray masses all excited! All directions’ wheels adorn her! …Tara Who Protects from All Fears (Jikpa Kunkyob Ma), white in color, her gesture signifying the Three Rare Sublime Ones. She holds a white flask containing nectar whose function is to protect all sentient beings from fear and dangers. Her mantra is this:

    OM TARE TUTTARE TURE MAMA UPAKRAMA RAKSHA RAKSHA SVAHA”

    From: Rinpoche, Lama Zopa. The Power of Mantra: Vital Practices for Transformation (Wisdom Culture Series) (p. 70). Wisdom Publications.

    hṛdayāṅguli vibhūṣite

    Lineage NOTE: In one lineage of Surya Gupta transmission and some Nyingma lineages the 9th Tara is Principle Green Tara, but in Lord Atisha’s transmission, Principle Green Tara is in the center of all Taras and not counted as one of the 21. Instead, the 9th Protective Tara is Principle White Tara. (Green Tara is still the chief of the mandala in most versions.
