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 kalasa, also known as the water vase emanates from her arm.  It symbolizes purification and the dispensation of blessings through the sprinkling amrita, the elixir of immortality.
