Meaning:  Salutations to the Divine Mother and the Supreme eternal singular reality Tārā, who is dark in complexion, voluptuous, terrifying in appearance and adorned with serpents as earrings. Her mouth appears blood red with a lolling tongue and She is decked up in red garments and ornaments also enwrapping Her waist. She appears as heavy breasted and terrific. She is fully adorned with serpents and is standing upon a corpse close to the head. She appears to be extremely engrossed and focused on the tip of Her nose. She is very terrifying in Her appearance and is four armed. She is displaying the wish granting vara mudra with Her upper right arm and a lotus in Her lower right arm. On Her left upper arm, She is displaying the fear dispelling abhaya mudra and holding a water vessel on the lower left arm. She appears to be drinking blood gushing forth from the vessel. She is the supreme and the eternal Divine Mother, who bestows all wishes and accomplishes all our tasks. She also bestows the mystical siddhis, manifesting immense power. She resides high up on the mountainous cliffs. She is three-eyed, adorned with serpents along Her upper body from waist to the shoulder, like a sacred thread. She has an elongated nose, large thighs and organs, as well as a very large tongue. Her eyes are dazzling with the combined energies of the Sun and Moon. She destroys all types of enemies and negativity surrounding us and is magnanimous with Her blessings and manifestation of Her grace. She wears tiger skin upon Her body and has tied up hair. She rules over all the three realms and all triads. She never fails in fulfilling the wishes of Her devotees and making them happy. She removes all types of fears that can manifest in the entire Creation. May we bow and offer our obeisance to the Divine Mother, the ruler of the entire Creation Tāriṇī Devī.

Her posture on the corpse represents that She is Śakti, the dynamic super-consciousness and consort of Śiva, who is the static super-consciousness. The lolling tongue represents Her appetite to consume the karma that is seen as blood. She is also removing all our thoughts and doubts and assuring us of Her supremacy and the oneness of the consciousness with the super-consciousness. Her heavy breasts indicate Her role as the Sustainer of the entire Creation that She Herself has manifested. The red garments and the tiger skin display Her passion and active power, indicating Rājasic guṇa. The focus on the tip of the nose, is the most recommended meditative technique to activate the third-eye ājñā cakra, as well as all other cakras. The lotus on Her arms represents the evolution of consciousness. Her residence in the cliffs signifies Her presence in the crown sahasrāra cakra. The serpents represent the various energy centers, cakras and stimulation points (nāḍis) throughout our body, as well as the activation of the Kuṇḍalini energy in our body. The tied-up hair signifies Her resolve to aid in the complete evolution of consciousness merging into the super-consciousness.
