White Tara, Beloved Of Her Devotees

White Tara, Beloved Of Her Devotees -

BUDDHISM FOR LONGEVITY

This is a brass statue of Goddess White Tara. She was originally a Hindu goddess and was said to be a form of Shakti but later she gradually entered Buddhism from Shaktism and is now the main deity in Tibetan Buddhism. She is the mother of all Buddhas and is supposed to be a loving mother. She is a saviouress, a heavenly deity who hears the cries of people experiencing misery in the world. She is the goddess of health, long life and wisdom. She helps overcome negativities of human mind and heart and assists people to cross the path of suffering to reach the goal of enlightenment. White Tara’s Tibetan name is Dolkar. She is the symbol of purity and trust, similar to what her color says. It is proposed that White Tara came into existence from a tear of Avalokiteshwara (Buddhisatva of compassion and mercy).

In this statue, she is shown as sitting in a meditation lotus posture with both legs folded, seated on a double lotus. She is represented as wearing a beautifully carved scarf covering her shoulders and neck from the back side and an exquisite long apron.She keeps a vigilance on all the sufferings of the world from all sides. She has an enchanting face with three jewels glowing on her neck. Her crown has the pattern of a Buddhist Temple. Her left hand is upwards, where tip of the thumb is touching the ring finger forming a circle and other three fingers held straight up. This mudra is a representation of her healing and curing nature. The right is in a gesture of blessing, facing downwards and thumb is overlapping the index finger, the other three fingers pointing straight down. It is emblematic of the quality of energy required for crossing the path of obstacles and reaching wisdom. She is holding full blown long stem lotus called Utpala, wrapped around her hands and touching both her shoulders respectively in an artistic yet natural look. This lotus has three blooms representing past, present and future.

Longevity, survival and concern for sufferings are the main aspects of this supreme and loving mother goddess White Tara.

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 srong-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.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.

I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
