Green Tara


Tara also known as Jetsun Dolma (Tibetan language:rje btsun sgrol ma) in Tibetan
Buddhism, is a female Bodhisattva in Mahayana Buddhism who appears as a female Buddha
in Vajrayana Buddhism. She is known as the “mother of liberation”, and represents the virtues
of success in work and achievements. In Japan she is known as Tara Bosatsu , and
little-known as Duōluó Púsà in Chinese Buddhism.[1]
Tara is a tantric meditation deity whose practice is used by practitioners of the Tibetan branch
of Vajrayana Buddhism to develop certain inner qualities and understand outer, inner and
secret teachings about compassion and emptiness. Tara is actually the generic name for a set
of Buddhas or bodhisattvas of similar aspect. These may more properly be understood as
different aspects of the same quality, as bodhisattvas are often considered metaphoric for
Buddhist virtues.
