The incomparable White Tara with Her hands in the traditional mudras. The word ‘mudra’ refers specifically to the stance of the hands. The murti that you see on this page is of the dvibhujadharini, the one possessed of (‘dharini’) two (‘dvi’) arms (‘bhuja’): the left hand wields protection over Her devotees, while the right hand grants them their innermost wishes.
A sharp-featured sculpture of the Bodhisattva, sculpted from pure brass. The complexion of Her body is a deep, all-encompassing black, the colour of sattvaguna, while the attire and adornments that clothe it are a dull gold colour. The complex engravings in the latter regions add to the wealth of detail that characterises this sculpture.
A pair of mythical floral elements flank the delicately rounded shoulders of White Tara. The angular features of Her handsome face and the long-drawn, half-shut eyes surpass them both put together in terms of beauty and tenderness. The same is framed by a traditional crown of five spires, long karnakundalas (danglers), and a necklace accentuating the superb bone-structure of Her decolletage.
