Ponlop Rinpoche has said…”the main reason that we supplicate Arya Tara to dispel all fears is because dispelling fears was one of her main commitments, or pledges, or vows. So the supplication to become free of these fears, or the supplication for Arya Tara to free us from these fears, relates to all forms of outer and inner fear, outer and inner harm, and outer and inner adverse conditions. And so therefore Tara is a bodhisattva, as an enlightened being. Tara is not just our imagination. She was also a person. You can see the history there. So her enlightened power is to spark that energy or power within us, which is already there. It’s kind of like invoking your own enlightened quality, or the quality of your intelligence, the power of your compassion.”
