The followers of Green Tara believe that her special powers will help them overcome dangers, fears, and anxieties, and that she will grant wishes. She is also believed to help one cross over from danger to safety or from suffering to happiness. Her femininity (signified by the two full-blown lotuses at her shoulders), imbues her with soft and compassionate feelings, and she acts very quickly and directly as a savioress. Representing active compassion, she is particularly worshipped for her ability to overcome the most difficult situations. As the first Dalai Lama puts it, just by being called to help, she instantaneously saves the faithful from attacks by the following eight calamities:

lions and pride
wild elephants and delusions
forest fires and hatred
snakes and envy
robbers and fanatical views
prisons and avarice
floods and lust
demons and doubts

The Dalai Lama further versifies:

On a lotus seat, standing for realization of voidness,
(You are) the emerald-colored, one-faced, two-armed Lady
In youth's full bloom, right leg out, left drawn in,
Showing the union of  wisdom and art -  homage to you!
Like the outstretched branch of the heavenly turquoise tree.

Your supple right hand makes the boon-granting gesture,
Inviting the wise to a feast of supreme accomplishments,
As if to an entertainment - homage to you!
Your left hand gives us refuge, showing the Three Jewels;
It says, "You people who see a hundred dangers,
Don't be frightened-I shall swiftly save you!"
Homage to you!
Both hands signal with blue utpala flowers,
"Samsaric beings! Cling not to worldly pleasures.
Enter the great city of liberation!"
Flower-goads prodding us to effort-homage to you!

... First Dalai Lama (1391-1474)

Wearing a five-crested crown, Green Tara sits upright on a double lotus pedestal. While her left leg is tucked in, the right is extended towards the viewer, signifying her ever-readiness to spring into action for the benefit of her devotees. The face is slightly squarish and the brows are well-arched. The two lids are wavy and flowing, like two, gently coursing rivers. The nose is equally sharp and together with the eyes and the well-defined, slightly thick, red lips, contributes equally to the introspective, self-contended character of the facial expression.

The conch-like, curving lines on her vase-like neck symbolize the sweetness of her speech. A goddess, she is not bereft of typical womanly charms which are further emphasized in no small measure by the elaborate ornaments adorning her. While a richly decorated collar enframes the neck, wider, longer necklaces extend a long way down, with one ending at her waist. The sculptor has managed to diffuse the form of the goddess with a certain amount of litheness, but certainly the overall impression is not one of lightness.
