Tara, the Buddhist Goddess of compassion, stands here in a gesture of ease on a lotus pedestal. This particular posture of the Goddess where the head, torso, and legs slant in contrary directions is known as tribhanga. The legs and hips jutt to the right, the trunk to the left, and the neck and head then again gently to the right. It is a lyrical, dreamy, very graceful pose. The three curves formed by the body symbolize the three worlds, upper, lower and middle, better known in Sanskrit as triloka. This is also popularly known as the posture of three bends.

The lower garment of the goddess is tightly wrapped around her legs and the upper part of her anatomy is bare. In classical Indian aesthetics the breasts are accentuated as a symbol of their nourishing potential, and the hips are rotund and ample, as an indication of her child bearing capacity. The Tibetan aesthetic is slightly different. Here the feminine charms of the goddesses are subdued in the context of the physical body, but nevertheless her compassion, grace, and boon of mercy are reflected in the language her body speaks, whether be it her slight, brooding smile or the sophisticated and suspended dynamic of her slender limbs.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
