About The God
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.
Her left hand, in the gesture of refuge and 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.
