Eight Forms of Green Tara
Eight Forms of Green Tara
Gandhanra Thangka Art
Green Tara personifies compassion at its most gentle and heartfelt. She sits on a lotus that arose out of the lake of tears shed by the Buddha of Compassion, Avalokiteshvara. He stands quietly in his compassion, but Tara is compassion in action: she extends her foot down to the lotus below, ready to stand at a moment’s notice to begin her work. Her right hand rests on her knee, open in the mudra of supreme giving. Her left hand forms the mudra of protection and fearlessness.
Tara (Skt. Tārā; Tib. སྒྲོལ་མ་, Drolma), 'She who Liberates' — a female deity associated with compassion and enlightened activity.
Tara (Sanskrit: तारा, tārā; Tib. སྒྲོལ་མ, Dölma), Ārya Tārā, or Shayama Tara, also known as Jetsun Dölma (Tibetan language: rje btsun sgrol ma) in Tibetan Buddhism, is an important figure in Buddhism. She appears as a female bodhisattva in Mahayana Buddhism, and as a female Buddha in Vajrayana Buddhism. She is known as the "mother of liberation", and represents the virtues of success in work and achievements. She is known as Tara Bosatsu (多羅菩薩) in Japan, and occasionally as Duōluó Púsà (多羅菩薩) in Chinese Buddhism.
Tārā is a meditation deity revered by practitioners of the Tibetan branch of Vajrayana Buddhism to develop certain inner qualities and to understand outer, inner and secret teachings such as karuṇā (compassion), mettā (loving-kindness), and shunyata (emptiness). Tārā may more properly be understood as different aspects of the same quality, as bodhisattvas are often considered personifications of Buddhist methods.
There is also recognition in some schools of Buddhism of twenty-one Tārās. Tārā is in fact the name of a whole class of deities. She appears in all the five colours of the Jinas. There are at least ten green forms, seven white, five yellow, two blue and one red.
Tārā is also a forest goddess, particularly in her form as Khadiravani, "dweller in the Khadira forest" and is generally associated with plant life, flowers, acacia (khadira) trees and the wind. Because of her association with nature and plants, Tārā is also known as a healing goddess (especially as White Tārā) and as a goddess of nurturing quality and fertility.
