Saptalochani Tara

At Swoyambhu Stupa Permises there are 5 Buddhas and 5 Taras Statues put in together to form a circle in the stupa.

7. Blue Tara

She is also known as “Saptalochani Tara”. The Goddess is the most significant protector of the Vajrayana teachings (the Indestructible Way), especially the termas and inner tantras. As the protector of mantra, the Goddess supports the disciple in deciphering symbolic Dakini codes and correspondingly determines appropriate circumstances and times for revealing secret tantric teachings.

Because She completely realizes the mantras and texts under her care, she reminds the spiritual practitioner of their secrecy and preciousness.
