White Tara is often referred to as the Mother of all the Buddhas and represents the motherly aspect of compassion. This painting very successfully highlights her symbolic and aesthetic aspects.

White Tara has one face representing the unified nature of reality. She has two arms which denote the twin truths, relative and absolute. Her white color is a symbol of purity. She has seven eyes. The three on her face signify the three purities of body, speech, and mind. The remaining four, one in each of the two palms of her hands and the soles of her feet, represent the following four immeasurable qualities:

a). Compassion

b). Loving Kindness

c). Sympathetic Joy

d). Equanimity Toward All Beings

With her right hand she makes the boon granting gesture and her left hand, holding the stem of a lotus flower between her thumb and fourth finger, is in the protection granting mudra. Her two legs, folded in the vajra posture, indicate that she is beyond the duality of samsara and nirvana.

The goddess's elongated ear lobes are hung with elaborate golden karnaphools (circular floral earrings). The Chinese-looking intoxicating eyes are characterized by drooping eyelids giving an almost dreamy expression to her finely chiselled face. The pursed thin, rich-red lips are curved in a slight smile. Three conch-like lines on the neck highlight its loveliness.

In the Tibetan aesthetic, White Tara is envisioned as a beautiful sixteen year old girl. Here the artist has very skilfully captured her youth, expressing it directly in her physical attributes and metaphorically in her demeanour. Thus we have two, perfectly spherical blooming breasts tapering to a blemish-free waist and slim lithe limbs, indicating her suppleness. On a symbolic level, the colorful flowers making up her crown and the lotus blossoming on her left shoulder, all suggest the freshness of her own budding youth.

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