The Symbolic Virtues of a Green Tara Statue
This lovely Green Tara statue is featured with the crown and jewels of a Bodhisattva. Additionally, the statue is fully gold gilded with 24k gold and the crown and jewelry are adorned with semi precious turquoise and coral stones. The stones are very thematic because her name is Green Tara. Although the color green has a deeper meaning as it is also affiliated with the Spring Equinox and quick movement.
The symbolism referenced above is appropriate because Green Tara encourages devotees to break free from dogmatic ways and embrace a fresh perspective. Additionally, she is always ready to move with alacrity to relieve the suffering of sentient life. As a result, in contrast with being locked in full lotus she sits in an open pose. Therefore, she is ready to spring into action when she is needed.
