Although Tara has
many forms artists like portraying her as a green Tara. All the forms of Tara
with different colors, hold significant emotions and spiritual messages. The
green color is usually calm and soothing, so green for Tara is mainly meant for
those who want to overcome their anxiety and fear. Those who are especially
devoted to her or want help in domestic difficulties, and those making long
dangerous Himalayan journeys.
Tara is portrayed in
emerald green. Clad in a rainbow skirt, with a meditation sash tied around her
body. She is decked in precious jewels. She is seated on a moon mat, her left
foot resting on her right thigh in a meditation posture. Her right foot stepped
down gracefully, and as it did small blue lotus rose out of the lake to form a
footrest. The right arm reaches down, the back of her hand resting on her right
knee, and her palm is open in a gesture of supreme giving. Her left hand is
held in front of her heart, palm outward, this gesture bestows protection and
fearlessness by invoking the three Jewels.
Tara’s thumb and ring
finger delicately hold the stem of a lotus flower and a fully opened bloom of
pale blue. At the bottom, you can see eight auspicious substances: A mirror for
sight, cymbals for sound, a perfumed couch, and fruit for taste.
