Who is Goddess TArA.
Though I heard about HER as one of the Dasa mahavidyas, whats the significance of HER moolamantra and dhyana and upasana as far as our materialistic life is concerned.
Also,I read from @Rickross, that she is holding a skull-cup ( is it naarakapaala or kapaalapatra ?) in one of her 4 hands.
In Buddhist Tantra(pls correct me, this word buddhist tantra), there's Goddess Green colored Goddess called Green Tara having wearing snakes as ornaments!
Are these Ugra-Tara & Green Tara same?
