A beautiful 3.75 inch copper and silver statue of Green Tara, the motherly female Buddha who protects all beings from fear and suffering. Her left forefinger and thumb are joined in the vitarka mudra, which signifies teaching and intellectual argument, while her right hand performs the varada mudra, which signifies the granting of blessings and the fulfillment of wishes. According to Lama Tharchin, practicing Green Tara offers "protection from all of our fear and suffering, whether immediate or long-term." Green Tara is especially associated with enlightened activity. Tara, or "She who liberates," is known for her swift protection for those who call upon her, and her enlightened activity and compassion. Yeshe Tsogyal was an emanation of Tara, and Tara is often considered to be the patron protector of Tibet. Of the twenty-one forms of Tara, Green is considered the main form of Tara and the source of all her manifestations.
This statue can be opened for consecration.
