Green Tara

Om Tare Tuttare Ture Soha

"Revered as compassionate mother of all beings, powerful protectress, and subjugator of destructive forces, Green Tara manifests in many forms to save all who call upon her from the eight great terrors that afflict body and mind.

In each hand she holds the stems of rare lotuses that blossom at her shoulders, and extends the compassion and mercy they signify with her right hand held in the gift-bestowing gesture. Her right foot, supported by a lotus, is held in the attitude of descending, suggesting Tara's readiness to respond. 

Here Tara is surrounded by eight manifestations, each appears within a specific type of terror to remove fear, empower prayer, and light the path to liberation. Below Tara, guarding the meditator's entrance to her mandala, is the fierce protectoress Lhamo. 

Above is Amitayus, the Buddha of Infinite Light." -back description
