Kurkula is additionally recognized as Red Tara. Tara shows up in numerous facets represented by various colors, including the two most famous ones being green and white. Red Tara, though less well-known in the West, is frequently recognized and venerated in the East. Red Tara is thought to be affiliated with the "Red Magic" or Vashya-karma (dbang gi phrin-las), wherein the power is used to enchant, bewitch, attract, subjugate, and magnetize others. As such, Kurukulla's dazzling red is representative of her primary purpose.
