    Description

    Tara is depicted with her feet crossed sitting on a bull.  She wears a tiger skin and her hands are in the dhamachakra mudra.  She holds a rosary, symbolizing the purity of her speech through mantra recitation, devotion and compassionate awareness.

    Tara is known as the "mother of liberation", and represents the virtues of success in work and achievements.  Tara is a tantric meditation deity whose practice is used by practitioners of the Tibetan branch of Vajrayana Buddhism to develop certain inner qualities and understand outer, inner and secret teachings about compassion and emptiness.  Tara is actually the generic name for a set of Buddhas or bodhisattvas of similar aspect.  These may more properly be understood as different aspects of the same quality, as bodhisattvas are often considered metaphoric for Buddhist virtues.

    This piece has been consecrated and is sealed with a metal plate with an inscribed emblem of a crossed-vajra.
