Mata Tara is the chief goddess of tantriks. Mata is also called Tara due to her being called Tarne Wali. Maharishi Vashistha first worshiped Tara. Goddess Tara, the goddess of beauty and grandeur, who destroys enemies, is the one who gives financial progress and offers charity and salvation. There are three forms of Bhagwati Tara: - Tara, Ekjata and Neel Saraswati.
Goddess Sati's eyes fell in Tarapeeth, so this place is also called Nayan Tara. This peeth is located in the Birbhum district of West Bengal. Therefore, this place is famous as Tarapeeth. In ancient times, Maharishi Vashistha had attained many Siddhi by worshiping Goddess Tara at this place. In this temple, a seeker named Vamakhepa meditated on the goddess Tara and attained many Siddhi from her.
Worshiping Tara Devi on the Navami date of Chaitra month and Shukla Paksha is considered very good for Tantra seekers. Whatever desires a seeker or devotee wishes from the mother from heart, it is fulfilled immediately.
