Green Tara – Creating Buddhas (Art Print) – Leslie Rinchen-Wongmo
Green Tara, the female buddha, represents the energy and activity of compassion. She reaches out her hand to grant all wishes and, with her right foot outstretched, is ready to step down and help all who call upon her. Tara is one of the most revered deities of Tibetan Buddhism. She is said to protect her followers from all fears and difficulties and to remove obstacles to success in both mundane and spiritual endeavors.
This thangka was featured in the documentary film, “Creating Buddhas: the Making and Meaning of Fabric Thangkas.”
