Description

"I took one look at this piece and could not take my eyes off of it.  It's sheer glow is hypnotizing!"
Brenda, Dharma Sculpture

Green Tara, Harit Tara, the Buddha of enlightened activity is Tara's most dynamic manifestation.  She is considered the consort of Amoghasiddhi.

In sculpture, Green Tara is portrayed in the same form as White Tara but she has a water lily (utpala) with petals half closed on her right.  She is depicted in a posture of ease (lalita asana) with her right leg extended.  The left leg is folded in the contemplative position on the beautifully painted, gold plated, double lotus throne.

Her left hand, in the gesture of refuge, holds the stem of a lotus that floats over her left shoulder as a symbol of purity and power.  Her right hand is in varada mudra or the boon-granting gesture because she is quick to respond to those who seek her aid.  She is adorned with five jewels symbolizing the five Dhyani Buddhas.  She wears six kinds of ornaments including necklace, earrings, bracelets and so forth, symbolizing her perfection of the six paramitas.  Her left hand makes the refuge gesture by pressing the thumb and ring finger together, symbolizing the unity of wisdom and compassion; the other three fingers denote the triple jewels, namely the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha.

This piece has a perfectly proportioned body.  The splendor of her ornaments is remarkable.  The entire piece is bedecked with semi-precious stones.  Her face is gilded with 18k gold.  The gold  is crushed into a powder and then made into a paste.  The gold paste is mixed with an organic paint mixture then used to paint the most important part of any statue; the face.  On the back of the base is the inscription of the Mantra "Om Mani Padme Hum".  The base of the piece is sealed with a double vajra symbolizing the balance of the four elements and harmony of the four directions.

The followers of Green Tara believe that her special powers will help overcome dangers, fears, and anxieties, and that she will grant wishes. She is also believed to help one cross over from danger to safety or from suffering to happiness.  This statue is an absolute masterpiece!
