The Feminine in Buddhist Art

The feminine in Buddhist Art fulfils its psychological need and comprises its spiritual structure. Compassion - the softest aspect of being, which was the core of Buddhism, best revealed itself in a goddess frame. Hence, in the course of time, feminineness dominated the Buddhist ambience so much so that even the images of the male gods like Avalokiteshvara were conceived with a feminine touch in their appearance and as an essential aspect of personality.

The feminine tenderness and grace with which subsequent images of Buddhism were conceived define the epitome of Buddhist iconographic perception and art. The virtues which Buddhist Goddesses most potently represent are benevolence, compassion and protectiveness.

The most popular goddess in Buddhist Art is Tara . She is the principal Buddhist goddess, and is conceived with a wide range of attributes and personality aspects. As Devi preceded all gods in Hinduism, Tara as Prajnaparmita - Perfection of Wisdom and highest metaphysical principle, is claimed to have priority even over. In Buddhism, Goddess Tara is the light and the prime source of Buddhahood and thus of all Buddhas. Like Devi, who is Shiva's consort, Tara has been conceived as the consort of Avalokiteshvara. Like Devi who is the mother of the gods of the highest order, Tara, at least in Mahayana Buddhism, is the mother of all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas.
