Kurukulla is a red female, semi-wrathful yidam of the Lotus family who is mentioned in both the Hevajra tantra and as one of the Twenty-One Taras mentioned in ancient Tara tantras.
She is associated with rites of magnetization and symbolizes controlling internal and external passions. Kurukulla destroys ignorance and transforms obstacles into wisdom through her arrows of flowers. Her practice is also considered helpful in subjugating enemies.
She is depicted in the dancing posture of a dakini with four arms holding a flowery bow and arrow in one pair of hands and a hook and noose of flowers in the other pair. Her body and crown are adorned with skull ornaments.
