Are there Sutras on Tara?

Discuss and learn about the traditional Mahayana scriptures, without assuming that any one school ‘owns’ the only correct interpretation.

Miranda Shaw's Buddhist Goddesses of India, Princeton University Press, explains all the sutras Tara is in starting on page 314.
Just recognize the conceptualizing mind.

A User posted a few Sutras that Tara was associatted with Avalokiteshvara by middle age texts,are these texts more authoitative or authentic than the Tantra that says Arya Tara was a female who lived as a human and the monks and nuns prayed she would be reborn as a male so she could become a buddha but that Tara wanted to prove them wrong and became a Buddha in her life as a female and Vowed to become a Female boddhisatva forever?
