Her iconography is close to Goddess Kali as opposed to the same of Goddess Saraswati in the Vedas. Other popular forms of Godess Tara are Tarini and Ugra-Tara. Devi Nilasaraswati is the Ishta-devi of sage Vashista. It is well known in the society of tantra practitioners that she puts her worshipper to extreme challenges before really granting siddhi. For example, sage Vashista himself was plucked off several times in this sadhana despite performing extreme austerities for many many years. As a result the sage did put a curse on Tara-mantra. The success of Brahmananda Giri (of Digamvaritala Bangladesh, the Parapara guru of Krishnananda Agamvagisha) in this sadhana is a story worth knowing. In the recent past, she was worshipped by Vamdeva or Bamakhyapa (the crazy Bama), the Bhairava of Tarapith on the same 'pancha-mundi-asan' (the seat of five skulls) below the Shalmali tree (known as Mundamalinitala) where sage Vashista is supposed to have perfomed his sadhana. Amongst the several boons Nilasaraswati grants are poesy and eloquence. Moreover, she grants 'vaksiddhi' for free or resides in the tounge of the worshipper, and, this is the precise reason that explains her name. Brihannila Tantra is a source to know more of her. Stotra is from Brihadnila Tantra, edited by Ramachandra Bhatt and Harabhatta Shastri, published by the Kashmir Marcantile Press, Srinagar in 1938.
