the finest brass, this sculpture exudes a timeless radiance that accentuates
every intricately detailed feature. Goddess
White Tara's serene countenance, with eyes full of compassion and wisdom,
reflects her role as a symbol of nurturing and healing. The delicate attributes
she holds, from the lotus flower to her graceful posture, depict her readiness
to alleviate suffering and bring solace to all. In Tibetan Buddhism, White Tara
is revered as a deity of compassion and longevity. As you hold this sculpture,
you hold a representation of her boundless capacity to offer solace,
protection, and spiritual guidance, embodying the divine feminine energy that
nurtures and uplifts.
She has seven eyes: the two usual eyes, plus an eye in the centre of her forehead and eyes in each of her hands and feet. These indicate that she sees all suffering and all cries for help in the human world using both ordinary and psychic or extraordinary means of perception. They thus symbolize the vigilance of her compassion.
White Tara has a lovely, young face. With her right hand, she makes the boon-granting gesture and her left hand, holding the stem of a lotus flower between her thumb and fourth finger, makes the gesture that grants protection to her devotees.
The elaborate lotus flower, held in the left hand is called Utpala. It contains three blooms: the first, with seeds, symbolizes the past Buddha Kashyapa; the second in full flower, symbolizes the present Buddha Shakyamuni; and the third, ready to bloom, symbolizes the Future Buddha Maitreya. This signifies that White Tara is the essence of all three Buddhas of the past, the present, and the future.
