White Tara

is the goddess who grants the boon of healthy longevity.

White Tara is often referred to as the Mother of all the Buddhas. She represents the motherly aspect of compassion. Her white colour indicates purity, but also indicates that she is Absolute Truth, complete and undifferentiated.

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 which 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 the three Buddhas of the past, the present and the future.

This statuette depicts the Buddhist deity White Tara who is the consort of Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara. She symbolizes perfect purity and is believed to represent transcendent wisdom. The deity is also considered as the special goddess of long-life and helps devotees to overcome obstacles, grants wishes and protects them from danger and distress.

It is generally believed that her complexion is white as she is an incarnation of the Chinese wife of the Buddhist king crong-tsang-sgam-po who was of white complexion, but scholars generally believe that artistes probably followed the Chinese custom.

She is seated in Padmasana on a lotus throne and has two hands: the right hand is in the gesture of charity (varada) and holding a flowing stem of full-blown lotus flower, while left hand is in the gesture of abhaya or argumentation and also holding the stem of a half-blown lotus flower. This signifies that the White Tara symbolizes all aspects of a blossoming femininity.

The figure has a smooth, slim and slender body. The eyes are half-closed and there is a sacred circle between the eyebrows. The facial expression shows serenity, calm and compassion.

Her hair is partly upswept in knots and partly falls on her shoulders. The goddess is adorned with a five crested crown, earrings, necklaces, a sacred- thread, armlets, bracelets, a waist-band and anklets. The upper portion of the body is bare except for the ornaments. The skirt covers the body upto the feet. The border of the garment is incised with floral designs. She has more than two eyes which are visible on both the palms and soles.

She grants immaculate wisdom, learning, contemplation, and meditation and is extremely popular in Tibet, Mongolia and Nepal. The Ceremonies of Tara are an integral part of Karmapa rituals. Her mandalas are worshipped from the third to the ninth of every month and on auspicious days there are special services to White Tara.
