The Matchless Beauty Of Green Tara

The beauteous Green Tara, seated on a throne made from gigantic lotus blooms conjoined to each other. She is the ever-youthful daughter of the mountains, the quintessential Matrdevi (maternal deity) of the Mahayana and Vajrayana traditions. As the embodiment of karuna (compassion), metta (benevolence), and shoonyata (sublimity), Her stance is gentle and graceful in addition to being deeply contemplative. It is almost as if She is floating amidst the clouds that kiss the snow-laden heads of the unattainable Himalayas.

In keeping with the traditional iconography of Green Tara, the legs of this murti are gathered in a rudimentary bhadrasana. The right foot rests on the belly of a fresh lotus that has sprouted up the front of the throne. Her long torso, like the strong, supple stalk of the wild lotus, is overlain with precious adornments befitting Her paralokiya (otherworldly) status - they cascade down the gorgeous undulations of Her limbs and shoulders and breasts, having been sculpted with surreal, lifelike detail. The same goes for the silken dhoti wound around Her lower body, its hems spread across the surface of Her lotus throne.

The stems of mythical Himalayan flowers wound around Her slender arms. Their twin presence adds to the ethereal quality of this Green Tara composition. Her lustrous face, set with a five-spired crown (as is the norm with Buddhist deities) and a pair of karnakundalas (danglers) grazing Her clavicles. Finally, those irresistibly beautiful eyes, half-shut in profound contemplation.
