The Seventh emanation of Tara, Tummo Zhengyi Mithubma who destroys all negativities

Noble Lady Tara Tummo Zhengyi Mithubma, Unconquerable Fierce Lady Who Dispels Wars and Natural Disasters.

The seventh Tara is known as Zhengyi Mithumba. Her name means “unconquerable, cannot be defeated by others.” She destroys all negativities.
om jetsünma pakma drolma la chaktsal lo
Oṃ, Homage to the noble lady Tārā!
chaktsal tré cheja dang pé kyi
Homage to you, who with traḍ and phaṭ
parol trulkhor rabtu jomma
Crush the enemies’ yantras to dust.
yé kum yön kyang shyab kyi nen té
With right leg bent in and left leg extended,
mé bar trukpa shintu barma
You stand, radiant amidst a mass of blazing fire.
The seventh homage is to Tumo Zhenge Methubma, the “Unchallenged Furious Lady”, who averts wars, lightning and hailstorms by intoning TRAT and PHAT, which in Sanskrit means to tear and cut. These syllables thwart the magical wheels of the intentional evil deeds of the eight classes of spirits. 

They avert lightning strikes and hailstorms, and destroy cannons and other weapons of war. To depict that she has gone beyond of the extremes of samsara and nirvana by her compassion and realization of emptiness, her right leg is outstretched and her left leg is drawn in, and tramples on malignant beings. 

She conquers all fears of nirvana and samsara with her power of realization of emptiness and compassion. She is black, and sits amidst flames. Her wrathful wrinkles whirl like ocean waves. 
Homage is paid to the lady who wields a mystically blazing sword held atop a blue lotus that burns all foes to ashes. 
The inner meaning of her outstretched and drawn in legs is the sensory cognitions; when the sensory cognitions perceive and harmonize the sensory objects, the samsaric wars arise. 
By saying tear and cut, she severs attachment to sensory objects and purifies them. This is the base of the male and female Bodhisattvas. 
On a throne of a lotus and moon appears Tummo Zhengyi Mithubma, black like dense rainclouds. 
Blazing wisdom fire surrounds her. Her wrathful frown undulates like waves in a stormy ocean. She sits in the dismounting posture. She has one face and two arms, her hair is tucked up. 
Her right hand is in the mudra of supreme charity. Her left hand, in the Three Jewels mudra, holds an open utpala flower blooming at her ear. 

On its pistil is a sword, blazing with a mass of fire. It crushes all into dust both the magic spells of the eight classes of spirits, which cause hail and lightening, and the machine of war: weapons of mass destruction, enemies and killers. Meditate on this and recite the mantra.

Cultivate Generous Thought and practice giving gifts to the Sanghas.

The Buddha once explained that it is a meritorious act even to throw away the water after washing one's plate with the generous thought:...
