Dolma Kharpo
The 7-eyed goddess of purity and transcendental wisdom, Tara was born of a single tear of compassion shed by Avaloketishwara on seeing the suffering of humanity.  She grants a long life, fearlessness, patience and peace.  Her symbol is a white or pink paeonia flower (sanskrit: Upala).   She can be associated with the full moon and is seen as an emanation of the fire element (Buddha Amithaba). Her short mantra is:
Om Tare Tuttare Ture Svaha

May all sentient beings
have happiness and its causes,
May all sentient beings
be free from suffering and its causes.
May all sentient beings
never be separated from sorrowless bliss.
May all sentient beings
abide in equanimity, free of bias,
attachment and anger.
