Description
 
Green Tara is one of the most popular deities in Tibetan Buddhist practice, embodying the activity of all the Buddhas.  A completely enlightened Buddha, she vowed to achieve Buddhahood in the form of a woman and always remain so.  She is referred to by many names, including the Buddha of Enlightened Activity, The Swift Liberator and Mother of All Buddhas.  Generally portrayed as a young woman of sixteen, Green tara is rapturously beautiful and inspires the viewer to gaze on her for a long time, reflecting on her qualities.  She is depicted in a comfortable position, yet ready for action.  Her right hand gesture symbolizes her ability to help all sentient beings with their needs., and her left hand symbolizes the Three jewels of refuge as well as the union of wisdom and compassion.  Practitioners turn to Green Tara for small and large requests, believing that she can alleviate their problems by helping to remove dangers, take away suffering, eliminate anxiety and fear, and in her compassion, that she will act quickly to do this.  She offers protection from the Eight Fears, which are the obstacles and delusions of daily life.  The mantra for Green tara is Om Tare Tuttare Ture Svaha.
