Oh Tara, holy liberator, swift-acting mother, we
pray and invoke your blessings;
Please watch over us, protect us, and hold us in your
loving embrace.

Depictions of the wondrous female Buddha, Tara, are found everywhere in Asia, especially in Tibetan Buddhism. Tara, whose name means star, embodies the sacred feminine energy found in all of us. Viewed like a brilliant light illuminating the darkness of the world, Tara is an all-encompassing, nurturing mother figure. She appears in twenty one different forms. The most common are the White Tara and Green Tara.

Here Green Tara is shown in her characteristic iconography, with one leg out of the lotus position. This shows the goddess's ever readiness to spring to the immediate defense of her devotees. Indeed Green Tara acts swiftly in answering prayers - like a lioness protecting her cubs.

A picture of sensual charm and spiritual purity, she is seated on a moon disc supported by a giant lotus. The head is charmingly inclined, the body a trifle arched so that the left shoulder is perceptibly higher than the right; one hand, held close to the heart, forms a mudra of protection and the other, resting lightly upon the knee, forms the gesture of bestowing gifts. In her elaborate crown can be seen an image of the Great Buddha himself. Heavy ornaments adorn her throat, wrists, and ankles. The bright gauzy silks fluttering from the shoulders, and a series of many-hued silken skirts leave the slender torso and smoothly rounded breasts uncovered in the manner of ancient India, and accentuate the lithesomeness of the arms and of the youthful body.

Delivered by to all international destinations within 3 to 5 days, fully insured.
