Green Tara – The Rescuer.

Green Tara is arguably the most beloved goddess in the Buddhist pantheon. She is the female embodiment of the enlightened compassion and miraculous deeds of all the Buddhas, offering protection and assistance to all who face challenges in their lives. She vowed that until all suffering was eliminated she would work continuously in a woman’s body for the benefit of sentient beings. Thus Green Tara represents the very essence of virtuous and enlightened activity.
Green, being the color of nature and flourishing life, signifies her energetic and vivacious personality. She is always depicted as a beautiful and vigorous young woman with a touch of playfulness. In this sense she teaches us not to take ourselves too seriously. She delights in a receptive mind and an open heart, for in such a person her blessings and wisdom can naturally unfold.

Gestures and attributes

Green Tara is depicted in a posture of graceful contemplative ease with her right leg extended. The extension of her leg symbolizes her continuous activity, constant alertness and her readiness to spring into action to assist those who call upon her. Her right hand is extended downward, palm open, with thumb and index finger touching. This hand position is known as Varada Mudra, or the gesture of granting wishes and protection. Her left hand, raised to shoulder height with fingers extended and palm turned outward, is in the gesture of granting refuge and freeing from fears (Abhaya Mudra). Each of her hands also holds the stem of a beautiful lotus flower that floats above her shoulder as a symbol of her radiant purity and power.
