Tara Dugkarmo – Queen of the White Umbrella. The 19th of Atisha’s 21 Taras displays a semi-wrathful smile and is white in colour. This manifestation of Tara offers protection from nightmares and bad omens, perpetuating serenity and peace in their place. She also plays the important role of safeguarding the Dharma and those that teach it from discord and conflict. A white umbrella appears on Tara’s utpala flower. Original digital painting, 2022.
