Who is TARA?
Green Tara Buddha: Compassion in Action
The Green Tara buddha was believed to be incarnated as the Nepali princess. She is considered by some to be the original Tara and is the female consort of Amoghasiddhi, one of the “self-born” buddhas. She is generally shown seated on a lotus throne with right leg hanging down, wearing the ornaments of a bodhisattva and holding the closed blue lotus. Green Tara is usually depicted as a compassionate being ready to step down from her lotus throne to offer comfort and protection from all of the sufferings we experience in the world.
Tibetans and Vietnamese pray to TARA when sick, when leaving for a long journey, or when we hope for success or wealth.
