The thirteen emanation of Tara Noble is Lady Tara Yulle Gyaljed

Tara Noble Lady Tara Yulle Gyaljed, Victorious Over War and Other Obstacles with and without form.

This Tara’s name Tara Yulle Gyaljed, means “Tara who gains victory over war”. She is renowned for protecting against all the obstacles related with wars. She can reverse the march of armies or stop the war completely. 

Her protection also applies inwardly, too, as she stops hostile emotions born of conceptual thinking that disturb our awareness and wisdom and might lead us to warlike actions.
om jetsünma pakma drolma la chaktsal lo
Homage to the noble lady Tārā!
chaktsal kalpa tamé mé tar
Homage to you, seated in a blazing halo
barwé trengwé ü na né ma
Of all-consuming apocalyptic flames.
yé kyang yön kum künné kor gé
Your right leg stretched out and left bent inward,
dra yi pung ni nampar jom ma
Immersed in joy, you crush legions of foes.

She is red in color and dwells amidst garlands of wisdom fire swirling like the fire at the end of an eon. 
Her right leg is stretched out and left leg is drawn in. Sparks of firefly from the prongs of the vajra she brandishes, subduing all harmful enemies. 
She comforts them by gathering them under the vajra-tent that protects them from their own evil. With every skillful means, she turns the wheel of dharma, according to the disposition of the beings to be tamed. 
She makes them content and joyous, and subdues the malefic forces of the two obscurations. The inner meaning is that this indicates the realization that “exhausts all phenomena”. 
Just as the fire at the end of the eon consumes the world, when the primordial wisdom swirls in dharmadhatu, the outer earth and stones, the inner animate body, and the secret conceptions are also exhausted. 

So the foes of the two obscurations are subjugated, and the joy of the great tranquility of the core of inner clarity of primordial wisdom that does not dwell in the extremes of samsara and nirvana is experienced.

On the throne of a lotus and moon, in the midst of blazing wisdom flames, appears Noble Lady Tara Yulle Gyaljed, red in color, with one face and two arms. Her two legs are in the dismounting posture. Her face has three eyes, and is half- peaceful half-wrathful. Her right hand is in the mudra of supreme charity. Her left hand, in the Three Jewels mudra, holds the stem of an utpala flower blooming at her ear. On its pistil stands a vajra with its points open. 

Light and sparkling vajras radiate from it, annihilating the hosts of enemies and harm-doers. Meditate that it returns back, surrounding your-self and all others 36 with an indestructible protection tent, 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:...
