Tara is known as the mother of liberation, whose great compassion brings swift blessings. She developed bodhicitta as a woman, and vowed to be born as a woman in all her future lives, and vowed to attain Buddhahood as a woman as well. Among the most popular bodhisattvas, Tara is widely revered. Although she has many forms, the Samaya Yogini form is commonly shown to express her role as a goddess embodying the feminine principle in the universe and in each person. Capable of being both ferocious and playful, she is said to delight in an open mind and a receptive heart.
