Tara is a tantric meditation deity whose practice is used by practitioners of the Tibetan Buddhism to develop certain inner qualities and understand outer, inner and secret teachings about compassion and emptiness.

These may more properly be understood as different aspects of the same quality, as bodhisattvas are often considered metaphors for Buddhist virtues.
