The Green Tara

Leave a comment

The Green Tara (Sanskrit: Syamatara; Tibetan: Sgrol-ljang) is a revered goddess figure originating in Tibet. She is the female manifestation of active compassion, reborn in the form of a female goddess, empowering all women, men, all sentient beings. The Green Tara, Mother of all Buddhas, is a grant wisher, always willing to take steps in helping those who are facing adversity. She is said to have been incarnated as the Nepali wife of the Tibetan king Srong-brtsan-sgam-po. In Buddhism, the color green signifies activity and accomplishment.This version is a modern rendering including a star emanating light from the heart region, the symbol is originally from Damascus, Syria, it is a geometric pattern found on tiles, which is made up of a complex line structure. I also added a wood lilly, which is a resilient flower that grows in the foothill region of my home. I incorporated different symbols to show the universality of the Green Tara who today has reached many lands outside of Tibet. Simply put the Green Tara transcends all boundaries, all obstacles, all religions. With ease and readiness the Green Tara will help those who call her name.

‘Until Samsara is empty, I shall work for the benefit of all sentient beings in a woman’s body.’

Oṃ Tāre Tuttāre Ture Svāhā
