Tara

Tantra of Tārā, Source of All the Different Activities ( Skt. tārā viśvakarma bhava tantra, Tib. སྒྲོལ་མ་ལས་སྣ་ཚོགས་འབྱུང་བའི་རྒྱུད་, Wyl. sgrol ma las sna tshogs 'byung ba'i rgyud) — a tantra of Tara. Taranatha in his Golden Rosary writes that Avalokiteshvara taught millions of verses or Tara tantras but most of them have been lost in the human world. The present tantra found in the Tibetan Kangyur was translated in the 12th century, and is classified as a Kriya Tantra.
