Tara (Tib. Drolma) is praised as the "mother of all buddha-activities" and is compassion-in-action. She is swift in providing protection and care for those who invoke her and is said to have vowed to always appear in the female form to deliver beings from dangers and sufferings. There are many forms of Tara but Green Tara (Tib. Droljang) is often considered to be the principle form of Tara.
