Description

In the Tibetan tradition of Buddhism, Tara is a beloved figure of compassion.  Her wrathful energy is understood to serve others and to cut through to truth, in this form she is a protector and uses her energy wisely.  Tara is one of the few female figures of divinity that shows a full range of expression.

This Tara statue is part of a set of 21 Taras that were made by the same artist.  They have beautiful intricately carved crowns.

Her left hand is in the sharanamagana mudra also known as the gesture of giving refuge.  A crossed vajra emanates from her arm, the vajra is a symbol of discriminating awareness and represents a thunderbolt.  Tara’s wisdom is expressed through the clarity and strength of a thunderbolt.  Imagine a mother tiger protecting her young, ready to pounce if necessary.  Tara's kindness is powerful and direct, she teaches us to appreciate our emotions and channel our passions as devotion to others.
