Tāriṇī (तारिणी) or Tārā is the Śakti, or female counterpart (spiritual consort) of Amoghasiddhi: one of the Dhyāni-Buddhas, according to Vajrayāna or Tantric Buddhism.—Her colour is green; and her symbol is utpala.—According to a Dhyāna found in the Pañcākāra section of the Advayavajrasaṃgraha, [Tārā] belongs to the Karma family to which evidently the Dhyāni Buddha Amoghasiddhi is also associated. The green colour of Tārā also suggest that she is the spiritual consort of Amoghasiddhi of green colour.

Tāriṇī’s form and nature are given in the Advayavajrasaṃgraha:—“In the īśāna corner on the orb of the moon there is Tāriṇī originating from the germ syllable Tāṃ of golden green colour. Her recognition symbol is a green night lotus. She is the embodiment of the element of Air. She belongs to the Karma family and is full of jealousy”.
