The 21 Taras (01)

The 21 Taras [Tibetan style] (Tibetan, Sgrol-ma)

It was not until the adoption of the Yogachara system, taught by Asanga in the fourth century AD, that the feminine principle began to be venerated in Mahayana Buddhism. Around the sixth century, the goddess Tara was considered as a Sakti of Avalokitesvara (sometimes as his wife).
