In the present painting she has a lovely young face. She is seated in vajraparyankasana on a lotus seat. Her right hand is in the gesture of supreme giving, her boundless generosity that ensures eight siddhis and supreme Enlightenment. Graceful and calm, her left hand holds blue lotus, the symbol of protection from all terrors and fears. She has seven eyes of Knowledge three on her face, two on her palms of her hands, and two on the soles of feet. This form of Tara is very popular in Mongolia and Nepal. In Nepal she is popularly called Sapta-lochani Tara or Seven-eyed Tara. Her silk robes, scarves, coronet, earrings, necklaces, armbands, bracelets, anklets and belt sparkle in their celestial elegance.
In mantra recitation and meditation, the white syllable Tam (for Tara) appears in the heart, and lights emanate forth from it. The syllable Tam at the heart suddenly melts and reappears as a white, eight-spokes wheel that in nature is the wisdom symbolized by White Tara. The wheel has five rims of mantra from all the letters and from the wisdom-wheel shine forth white lights. Devotee's body is filled with the nectar of immortality, and white lights emanate from each pore of the body to form an aura, a span in radius around him. Meditating thus, white radiance accomplishes the activity of pacifying illness, evil spirits, negative karmic forces, mental obscurations and hindrances as well as the completion of the natural span of life. The ceremonies of Tara are an integral part of Karmpa rituals. Her mandalas are worshipped from the third to ninth of every month. On auspicious days there are special services to White Tara.
