• Wine is the liquid form of the Goddess Tara, who is the saviour of all living creatures, the mother of all enjoyment and Release, the destroyer of dangers and disease, who burns up all sins and purifies the worlds, O Beloved , who grants all success and increases knowledge, understanding and learning.

    Wendy Doniger (1988). “Textual Sources for the Study of Hinduism”, p.135, Manchester University Press
