White Tara is one of the most beloved embodiments of the Tara Bodhisattva. Our Nepali artist did an exceptional job and created a masterpiece White Tara thangka painting. As a result, her divine colors appear very vibrant and will be a great inspiration to you in your practice. White Tara glows like a thousand white moons in the summer sky. Additionally, her bodhisattva crown is painted in beautiful colors with Amitabha Buddha. The 7 eyes of White Tara are painted with perfection so all of her actions and thoughts are imbued with the divine compassion and wisdom.
Our White Tara thangka painting holds the stem of the blue lotus between the index finger and thumb in her left hand. The lotus is very special for White Tara because it releases its fragrance in the moonlight. Additionally, White Tara sits in full lotus pose depicting the Abhaya mudra with her raised left hand. Her followers believe White Tara has more compassion for sentient life than a mother’s love.
Additionally, with her right hand she is depicting the Varada mudra. This venerable mudra is also known as the “gift giving” mudra. She gives the gifts of healing, compassion and longevity to the devotees who follow her teachings and recite her manta. Click here to learn more about the Tara bodhisattva.
