White Tara is the female Bodhisattva of compassionate activity, the supreme mother and collective manifestation of the enlightened activity of all the Buddhas. She is said to see all suffering and respond to requests for help. Her yogic method promotes health and extending one's lifespan.
The reasons behind the choice of a Buddhist thangka are many and are mostly related to our state of mind. Each deity in thangka painting represents a unique quality which we meditate upon. While we meditate looking at the painting, we try to be one with the deity in order to bring the good quality inside us. For example, the White Tara is the bodhisattva of Compassion. We meditate looking upon this thangka to be more compassionate towards all sentient beings for benefit of others.
The Tara mantra is OM TARE TUTTARE TURE SOHA. means liberating from samsara. TARE shows that Mother Tara liberates living beings from samsara, from true suffering, or problems. TUTTARE, liberates you from the fears. The third word, TURE, liberates you from disease.
Every painting is nicely packed with handmade lokta paper and is put inside a strong non bendable PVC Pipes for expedition.
