Goddess Tara - Mahavidya

Tara is one of the Devis of the Mahavidya worship

A cryptic Tara holding her customary lotus and scissors presses the body of Shiva under her foot. Sailing ships, attendants and perhaps Lord Rama surround her.

We have one duty to perform, which is to pass our religion on to the next generation, the next and the next. And how do we do this? How is this done? It is done by causing the children to memorize the precepts of our scriptures.
