White Tara is a popular emanation of the Bodhisattva Tara. Devotees believe that her compassion and loving kindness for sentient life exceeds that of their own mothers. Our White Tara Tibetan thangka painting is also strongly affiliated with long life, healing and compassion. Additionally, White Tara is one of the three Tibetan deities of long life alongside Amitayus and Namgyalma.
White Tara is also known as “cintachakra” which is the Sanskrit word for “wish fulfilling wheel”. If devotees faithfully recite the White Tara mantra she will grant them whatever they desire including long life and health. Additionally, she is naturally playful and encourages devotees to not take their Dharma practice too seriously. She is also an ardent feminist and the Tara Bodhisattva has chosen not to accept Buddhahood until there are more female Buddhas.
Our White Tara Tibetan Thangka painting depicts a special deity who is believed to glow with the brightness of a thousand white moons. However, her most alluring aesthetic attribute is her 7 eyes. As a result of her many eyes, she is able to carefully govern all of her actions with wisdom and virtue. Additionally, she is able to carefully monitor the suffering of all sentient life so she is better able to provide assistance. Her seven eyes have resulted in another name for her – “Seven Eyed”.
Our White Tara Tibetan thangka painting was hand painted by the artisans in Patan, Nepal. All of our Nepali painters were trained in the world renown thangka painting schools in the Kathmandu Valley. As a result, when you purchase this White Tara Tibetan thangka you can rest assured that you have procured monastic quality traditional Tibetan art.
