About Green Tara

Tara literally means right aim for liberation. Green Tara is representation of the entire enlightened activities of absolute Buddha charya (Buddhahood). Hence Green Tara is called the primitive source of inspiration to the enlightenment action of Buddhahood. Green Tara is known as "ma" progeny source of Buddha for three dimensional an eon (past, present and future). Tara is regarded as Prajna (wisdom) of Amoghsiddhi. Green Tara is the embodiment of air element and thus painted on green in color. Green Tara is also called Irsyarati or the embodiment of jealous nature. When the defilement jealousy is transmitted, it becomes all accomplishing wisdom. It is called Krityanusthan Jnana or the knowledge of performing act. Advayavajra Samgraha records Tara as to be originated from the seed of syllable "Tam" of golden green color. Her recognition symbol is a Nilopata (blue lotus). Green Tara belongs to the karma (action) family. Green Tara is described in the iconographic text as having two arms with Abhaya (protection) and Varada (bestowing) posture and seated on Lalitasana. She wears the Patamukuta (floral coronal) beautiful headdress studded with the Kum Kum flower.

Description about Poubha.

In the center of the painting Green Tara is seated on the lotus throne in a lalita ('playful') posture. She is a beautiful young maiden. Her right hand is shown in varadamudra because she is quick to respond to the petitions of those who seek her aid. She is holding the stem of lotus flowers on both of her hands.

Green Tara is adorned with five jewels symbolizing the dhyani five Buddhas. She wears six kinds of ornaments including necklace, earrings, bracelets and so forth, symbolizing her perfection of the six paramitas. Her left hand makes the refuge gesture by pressing the thumb and ring fingers together symbolizing the unity of wisdom and compassion; the other three fingers denote the triple jewels namely, the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha.

In both of her hands she is holding utpala flowers, symbolizing her purity. Her color is green because her bodhisattva activity is swift like the wind element. Green Tara is often known as the great liberator who rescues beings from the eight great fears aroused by elephants, lions, snakes, robbers, fire, water, demons and the government.
