White Tara Wishfulfilling Wheel (Tib. Drolkar Yishyin Khorlo; Wyl. sgrol dkar yid bzhin 'khor lo)— a form of Tara associated with longevity and one of the three deities of long life. She is white and has the appearance of a sixteen year old girl. She has three eyes, as well as an eye on each of the palms of her hands and the soles of her feet. Adorned with the thirteen ornaments of the perfect sambhogakaya, her right hand is in the gesture of offering, and her left hand, in the gesture of granting refuge, holds the stem of an utpala lotus flower which blossoms at the level of her ear. She is seated in the vajra posture on a moon disk seat, on top of an open white lotus.

This is the form of the main deity in the Chimé Phakmé Nyingtik sadhana as well as the Chimé Drupé Nyelam.
