Green Tara embodies the earth element.
She is a powerful goddess, a bodhisattva in female form who helps us
to overcome both material and spiritual obstacles.
This tiny beautiful statue embodies Green Tara's deep visceral connection to the Mother Earth. Here she is seated in the pose of ease (lalita asana), her right hand is shown in varada mudra (boon-granting gesture) because she is quick to respond to the petitions of those who seek her aid. Both her right and left hands gracefully hold full blooming lotuses. Lotuses are symbols of purity and spontaneous generation and hence symbolize divine birth.
Details abound for such a small piece! A statue perfect for small altars or travel.
This sculpture was hand crafted by the very talented artists of the beautiful Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal.
