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 heavy and 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 lips, contributes equally to the introspective, self-contended character of the facial expression.

The three 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, a wide, longer necklace extends a long way down, ending at her waist. While thus cascading, it manages to flow over her two nipples, shielding them from the viewer's gaze. The dhoti clinging to her shapely legs is held at the waist by a golden band and bejewelled tassels rest symmetrically across her thighs. The sculptor has managed to diffuse the form of the goddess with a certain amount of litheness, but simultaneously the overall impression is not one of lightness.

Amazing book and service. The shipment to Germany was even faster than I expected (4 days counting the weekend)the packaging was flawless and superb and I received the book in perfect condition. My pleasure to buy in your shop and thank you very much!

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
