Beautiful hand-painted thangka from Nepal depicting Green Tara. Closely associated with Buddha Amitabha and Chenrezig, Green Tara is considered the mother of all Bodhisattvas-- in fact, she loves all sentient beings just as a mother would. According to Lama Tharchin, practicing Green Tara offers "protection from all of our fear and suffering, whether immediate or long-term." Yeshe Tsogyal was an emanation of Tara, and Tara is often considered to be the patron protector of Tibet. Of her twenty-one forms, Green is considered the main form of Tara and the source of all her manifestations.
This lovely thangka can serve as a continuous inspiration for your practice, and for recognizing Rigpa (awakened heart-mind) within in each moment.
