These forms of Tara listed above are green in colour and all but one belong to the highest level of Tantra - anuttarayoga. The yellow Vajra Tara also belongs to the highest category of tantra and together with the other forms listed here comprise the majority of Tara practices that have both generation and perfection stage practices. These forms of Tara are derived from the Sarma tradition only.
