According to tradition the White Tara descends from a historical Chinese princess, and the Green Tara from a Nepalese princess, both of whom lived in the seventh century. Both married the great Tibetan king Songtsen Gampo (Tib. Srong btsan sgam po). It is said that the marriage of the Tibetan king with the Nepalese princess caused a war in which Nepal was defeated.

Green Tara' color symbolizes youthful vigor and activity. The Buddhist Lord of karma (action), Amoghasiddhi, is also associated with the green color, thus signifying that they belong to the same family. This is a further affirmation of the perception that Green Tara is a goddess of action. Indeed her right leg is extended forward showing her ever readiness to jump into action even at short notice. All her noble actions are directed towards the betterment of her devotees.

Here she sits in all her youthful glory on a full-blown lotus made up of petals made totally out of silver and gold. The blooming lotus represents the ripeness of her own youth as does the flowers she holds in her two hands. Splendidly dressed up, as a queen and princess should be, her lower body is draped in richly embroidered silks while her upper torso is left bare. A perfect blending of the sensuous and the spiritual.

This radiant painting captivates the eye by the use of a charming contrast of a few colors, the most pronounced being the rich green which retains its luminosity on Tara's graceful frame against the black background, and at the same time lies in a more subtle hue at the Goddess's feet in the foreground.
