According to Tara Tantra, she was born eons ago as the daughter of a king. She was a pious and caring princess who regularly provided offerings and prayers to the consecrated monks and nuns. As a result of her spiritual achievements, the monks told her that they would pray for her to be reborn as a man so that she may disseminate Buddhist teachings. She replied that there was neither male nor female in truth, that nothing existed in reality. She desires to continue in female form to serve other beings until everyone attains enlightenment, emphasizing the monk's lack of knowledge in assuming only male preachers for the Buddhist religion.
