A lovely Green Tara floating in a field of Tara stencils. Green Tara is one of the most revered figures in Buddhism. She is the female Buddha and the embodiment of loving-kindness and compassion. She is said to have been born from the tears of Chenrezig, who represents the compassion of all the Buddhas.
Green Tara’s right foot comes down off her lotus as though to say, “I am here when you need me.” She is considered the most accessible of the Bodhisattvas. The deep green of her skin is accentuated with the soft blues and oranges of her robes and scarfs. She holds the blue utpala or lotus flower in her right hand and her left hand extends downward in the blessings mudra.
