TARA YANTRA
Tara is the simplest and most powerful of  yantras . Her bhupur  has a beautiful blue-green, the color of green leaves, which occurs in the  Ganesha Yantra  and  the Sri Yantra . Green is the color of balance, which is necessary to cross the ocean  of samsara (bhava-sagara) . Meditation on the green generates complementary color red - the color of inspiration, and the free movement of revolt against the approved values ​​(rules and regulations).
lotus petals are painted pale pink. Pink symbolizes modesty. Meditation on this color makes a sincere person. The symbolism of the eight petals of the lotus has been previously described in the "Kali Yantra."
Inverted triangle pointing upwards painted crimson color - the color of rage (as the image of Tara's appearance is similar to Kali). Tara is a goddess, gets rid of the fear of the sea storms and floods.

Her connection with the speech contains overlapping crimson or purple triangle on purple background Akasha  - the element of the fifth chakra, which is considered to be the abode of the goddess of knowledge Saraswati.  Saraswati Nadi  is one of the fourteen major  nadis described in the tantric texts, it ends in a language organ of speech. It is often said that the language of the wise man sits Saraswati. Meditation on the crimson triangle, which is placed against the background of golden  Bindu generates green. So meditation on green  bhupure  creates a crimson color, and meditation on the crimson triangle - green. This balance is the key to understanding Tara - this balance  cockroaches  (ship). Due to this equilibrium boat  (Tarini)  is able to float and cross the water spaces. Green color is neutral - it neither hot nor cold, as it is a combination of warm yellow and cool blue.

Bright red color is the color of violence, but the green calms him. Held at the beginning meditation on green  bhupure  generates vitality (survival of the fittest, which is based on violence), and the subsequent meditation on a bright red (crimson) creates a green color and sets the balance. All completed meditation on the  bindu  - the most  shakti  Tara.

Tara

Name  Tara  comes from the Sanskrit root  tr , meaning "bear." This goddess carries a person through the ocean of relative existence  (samsara)  . She is the  shakti  Akshobhya (one of the incarnations of Lord Shiva).

There is a famous legend about how the gods and demons have joined forces in order to get out of the ocean  Amrita  (elixir of life). For the churning of the ocean, they used Mount Meru (the central axis  Bhuloka , the earthly plane of existence) as well as a rope - the king of snakes Vasuki. Great serpent Vasuki's head kept the demons, and the tail - the gods. Head of the serpent was a the place from which came the fiery breath, while the tail was harmless. The poison snakes found in her mouth, so that the demons had to hold on to the fire, poisonous part of the body, and the gods were pulling a snake for a peaceful part of the body. They began to churn the ocean, from which emerged one after the other eleven famous and priceless items  (PATH)  , and after them from the bottom of the sea rose the most deadly of all poisons  (halahala)  . All the gods and demons were excited, and calm was only the god Shiva. On the advice of his  shakti  Gauri he absorbed all the poison of his throat, causing his throat became blue. The day Shiva got two new names: Akshobhya or Akshobhya - Timeless (pleasure and pain, poisons and nectars) and Nilakantha - Sinegorly. Tara is a  tactical  Shiva-Akshobhya and like Mahakali, represents another aspect of the Divine Mother Gauri. After Shiva drank the poison, troubled gods and demons of excitement and discomfort are gone. In the end, on the surface of the ocean appeared divine physician and alchemist Dhanvantari with the elixir in a pot  (Kalat)  .

Tara-Tarini called bhava (the transfer through the ocean of relative existence,  samsara ) and bhai-Harini (get rid of the fear of the raging waters.) Seafarers should pray to her to escape the storm, and residents of coastal areas - in order to avoid flooding. Water is generated  Tanmatra race  (sense of taste). In Sanskrit, the word "water" is synonymous with the word "life." Water really is the life, as it takes eighty percent of the material composition of the body. Furthermore, water is the best solvent, since it dissolves almost all substances. Among other things, water is the source of all binder components. Adoration of Tara eliminates the problems associated with water, although the water itself is neutral, it is able to absorb it all and then turns into a dissolved substance. Abode of water in our body is the second chakra, and home to a taste of  (race)  - the language, which is also connected with the water, but at the same time associated with speech. For this reason, Tara is the goddess of speech. In Tibet, it is worshiped as the Nile-Tara, or Blue Saraswathi. It is an original sound,  nada , from which originated the entire phenomenal world. First  shakti Adya is filled with the energy of consciousness, and the second  shakti  Dvitiya -  nada . Tara is the second of the ten  Mahavidyas , and it is sometimes called Dvitiya. Its shape resembles the look of Cali - but, unlike Cali, its language is not peeping out of his mouth, and in her hand she is not holding a severed head. Around his neck hangs a garland of Tara human heads, while in Cali, this garland is made ​​from human skulls. And Kali and Tara are depicted standing on a corpse  (Shava) . Dead human body symbolizes the center of the phenomenal world, having exhausted its  supply of race  (the essence of life.)
as Tara  Mahavidya  is the embodiment of  race  (emotions) and the means of expression, that is the question. In  "Brahmanda Purana"  it is mentioned that it protects the lake from the nectar of  Manas . This lake is called: Manas, or "mind." No one can cross it without her permission. Goddess accompanied by a lot of girls, going for a drive around the lake with songs, dances and hymns in honor of Tara. These girls represent her  sakti crossing the lake of nectar  Manas . The text does not say that Tara is a  Mahavidya , but clearly states that it is the supreme deity who helps her with  Shakti  protects the lake with the elixir of life.

in Tantra is that  Siddhi  Tara can be achieved without meditation,  japa , worship , sacrifices, ritual practices and cleansing elements  (bhuta-shuddhi) , described in the following  mantra :
Japa Dhyana BINA BINA BINA  PUDZHADI Phi Priya  BINA BINA Balima Abhiasa  BHUTSHUDDHIADIBHIR BINA  BINA KLESHADIBHIRDEVIDEHA  DUHKHADIBHIR BINA  SIDDHIRASHU  BHAVEDSMATSMATSARVOTTMA MATA.
> Without  dhyana  (meditation) without  japa  (repetition of her name or  mantra)  , without the ritual of worship
> without sacrifice, without constant practice, without purification elements,
> without dealing with psychological problems (that must be resolved in order to achieve focus on one goal), > without getting rid of the difficulties associated with the physical body  (asana, pranayama) ,  Siddhi  Tara may occur due to one only remembrance of her with genuine faith. If you say her name in a moment of trouble, she will come and help you.  Anyone who has devoted himself to Tara, do not necessarily comply with rules and regulations ( the pit  and  niyama ). He does not need to follow the self-discipline - just enough to remember Tara. This makes the goddess Tara for everyone.
