The 16th emanation of Noble Tara Rigngag Tobjom

Noble Lady Tara Rigngag Tobjom, Destroying the Power of Evil Spells Cast by Enemies and Sorcerers.

The sixteenth emanation of Tara has special powers to stop the negative intentions of others, such as spells and curses. 
Her name is Tara Rigngag Tobjom. Rigngag may have several meanings, but in this case it refers to misusing the mantra or other aspects of practice for evil purpose, to harm. Thus the meaning of her name is “Tara who destroys the power of bad intentions”.

ཨོཾ་རྗེ་བཙུན་མ་འཕགས་མ་སྒྲོལ་མ་ལ་ཕྱག་འཚལ་ལོ། 
om jetsünma pakma drolma la chaktsal lo
Homage to the noble lady Tārā!
ཕྱག་འཚལ་ཀུན་ནས་བསྐོར་རབ་དགའ་བའི། 
chaktsal künné kor rabga bé
Homage to you, who, immersed in rapture,
དགྲ་ཡི་ལུས་ནི་རབ་ཏུ་འགེམས་མ། 
dra yi lü ni rabtu gem ma
Shatters the bodies of all your foes.
ཡི་གེ་བཅུ་པའི་ངག་ནི་བཀོད་པའི། 
yigé chupé ngak ni köpé
You manifest from the wisdom-syllable hūṃ.
རིག་པ་ཧཱུྂ་ལས་སྒྲོལ་མ་ཉིད་མ། 
rigpa hung lé drölma nyi ma
And set forth each of your mantra’s ten syllables. 
The sixteenth homage is to Drolma Barvai Odcan, “Tara Who Averts the Enemies and Mantra’s Spell,” who is red like the fire at the end of eon, sits on blue lotus, and holds a crossed vajra. 
She is surrounded by a host of vidyadharas and mendicants who have accomplished the practice of mantra and power of truthful speech and are endowed with perfect joy of samadhi. 
Their radiance scatters the bodies of the foes and overcomes the power of magical spells and the power of sorcery, destroying them without a trace. 

By reciting her mantra arrangement of the ten syllables, OM TARE and so on, she At the heart of the wrathful lady, awareness rests in the form of a HUNG radiating light that clears the outer, inner, and secret obscurations of the beings to be tamed. 
The ultimate meaning is that by subduing the foe of the impure appearance of our body, the awareness body of the Mother of the Victorious Ones is accomplished: the unchanging great blissful body endowed with the ten powers.
On the throne of lotus and moon appears Noble Lady Tara Rigngag Tobjom, red in color, with one face and two arms. She sits in the dismounting posture. Her right hand is in the mudra of supreme charity. Her left hand, in the mudra of the Three Jewels, holds the stem of an Utpala flower. 

On its pistil is a crossed Vajra that completely destroys the power of curses, black magic and the evil spells of enemies.


Meditate on this and recite the mantra.
