Green Tara - Original

GREEN TARA (Tib. Droljang)

Born from a tear of Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion, Green Tara grants protection and relief from suffering. Called “the mother of all Buddhas”, she promises assistance when called upon and is seen as the embodiment of active compassion. Her right hand bestows fearlessness while her left hand (in the gesture of supreme enlightenment) holds the Utpala flower representing her knowledge of the three times. The open flower reveals the past, the closed the future and the just opening the present. With devotion to her and doing her practice, both inner and outer obstacles can be overcome.
