The Best Green Tara Buddha Statue
Our Green Tara Buddha statue reflects the compassion of female Buddhists worldwide. In fact, as a bodhisattva Tara disdained the advice of the sangha to be reincarnated as a male. Furthermore, she vowed to only accept rebirth as a female until there were more female Buddhas. Additionally, the color green signifies her constant state of readiness. This is reflected in the partially extended right leg which lies over the edge of her single lotus sitting platform. Thus, Green Tara is always ready to come to the assistance of all sentient life.
Varada & Abhaya Mudras
The sacred mudras depicted by her show that her endless compassion and generosity have no bounds. Therefore, her right hand is gracefully lying over her right leg expressing the “gift giving mudra” also known as Varada. Also, her left hand is held near her heart expressing the classic protection or Abhaya mudra. Thus, Green Tara wishes to protect those seeking insight knowledge and the elimination of ignorance.
Lotus Blossom Symbolism
Additionally, between the thumb and index finger of each hand she gently holds the stems of lotus flowers which grow over her shoulders. The blossoming flower over her right shoulder signifies the beauty of a Lotus blossom rising above earthly defilements. She yearns to assist all of those who wish to vanquish ill will, attachment and ignorance. The unopened lotus flower over her left shoulder encourages devotees to strive for the purity that awaits sentient life in Nibbana.
This Nepalese sculptor adorned our beautiful Green Tara Buddha statue with the jewels and crown of a bodhisattva. Although some Buddhists believe that she is a fully fledged Buddha. Additionally, the skilled artisans of Patan have taken special care to embed beautiful turquoise stones into her jewelry. It is no accident that turquoise is a combination of blue/green. Blue signifies the purity of the Buddhas and green symbolizes her readiness to act. She wears it well and will inspire all those who lay their eyes on her statue.
