Tibetan Green Tara Statue Features
This Tibetan Green Tara statue is featured with the crown and jewels of a bodhisattva. At the request of the buyer we can embellish the crown and jewels with turquoise and red coral stones. Turquoise is a combination of blue and green, blue symbolizes the purity of the Buddhas and green symbolizes Green Tara’s readiness to act. Meditation on the color red can transmute the poison of attachment into the wisdom of discernment. Additionally, the fire gilded finish is 24K gold and gives the statue life like expression.
The symbolism of Green Tara encourages devotees to break free from dogmatic ways and embrace a fresh perspective. Additionally, she is always ready to move with alacrity to relieve the suffering of sentient life. Click here to learn more about the history and symbolism of the Tara bodhisattva.
