She was then put in the same way as Prajnaparamita and will see just as she attributes the title of "mother of all the victors", popularized especially as "the saving" "the one who makes cross on the other side".

In the Vajrayana Tara is also a deity of election (Yi Dam), able to lead the practitioner to the perfect Awakening that she embodies.

The green tara is the main form from which all the others would come
