Ekajati, the Destroyer of Anger
The Role of Blue Tara

Blue Tara is varyingly depicted. Sometimes she appears in
a fierce image. This is because she is a protector. She
removes all anger from those devoted to her.

This stamp from the fantasy land of Shambhala Nor
shows her holding a vessel with a flame. This is not
a traditional pose for this Goddess.
