A unique piece of authentic hand-made painting of Green Tara thangka from the Himalayas of Nepal. Made from natural stone color and pure gold.
Green Tara is also known as “Sgrol- ljang” in Sanskrit. She is the most well-known goddess in Buddhist. Green Tara is a goddess of compassion and the mother of liberation. According to folklore, she came into existence from the tear of Avalokiteshvara. The tear fell down and formed a lake, out of which a beautiful lotus rose up, and a Green Tara was revealed upon opening the lotus.
Mantra: “Om Tare Tuttare Ture Soha”
Green Tara is adorned in silken garments and jeweled ornaments. The main difference in the iconography between the green Tara and the white Tara is the position of the legs. Green Tara sits in a posture of ease, with one leg drawn towards her and the other resting on a lotus bud that springs from the pedestal. Her hands are in the mudra of perfect generosity, holding the stems of blue lotus showing a peaceful and smiling expression.
