Sita Tara with Four Hands (Tib.: drol ma kar mo chag shi pa): from the Three deity Mandala of White Tara as found in the Sanskrit text of the Sadhanamala, the Tibetan text of the One Hundred Methods of Bari Lotsawa and various edited Tibetan versions of both.
"White Tara with four hands. The first two perform the utpala gesture. The lower right holds a wishing gem together with [the gesture of] supreme generosity. The lower left [holds] bunches of utpalas. [Having] the same ornaments, garments and seated posture. At the right on a moon is yellow Marichi, holding in the right [hand] a white yak-tail fan and in the left a branch of the ashoka tree. Wearing a red inner garment and a blue lower garment. At the left on a moon is green-yellow Maha Mayuri, holding in the right [hand] a yak-tail fan [and in] the left a peacock tail feather. Wearing various garments." (Konchog Lhundrub, 1497-1557)
