Our Masterpiece Green Tara statue was handmade in Patan, Nepal and is based on Tibetan Buddhism. In Tibetan Buddhism, Green Tara is given the rank of a full Buddha. Indeed, for many centuries the Nepali sculptors have been the preferred source of the Tibetan Monasteries. As such, I invite you to compare photos of our Green Tara statue with statues made by other artisans.
This Masterpiece Green Tara statue was produced as a collaboration between three master artisans. As a result, the engravings on her robe, crown and jewels are done with intricate precision. Additionally, they are adorned with turquoise and coral stones. Her face is painted with a combination of glass and gold which creates an unequaled ambient luster. As a result, she will bring a sense of calm to any home or meditation center.
Divine Masterpiece Green Tara Statue
The original Tara is believed to have been born in a teardrop that fell from the left eye of Avalokiteshvara as he observed the suffering of sentient beings. As a result, she enticed Avalokiteshvara to intercede in their pain and she would be his partner. It is believed that she was then reabsorbed into his left eye to be reborn at a later time as the Chinese Princess Wecheng.
However, to this date it is still unclear to scholars whether the origins of Tara lie in Hindu or Buddhist theology. She is worshiped in both Buddhism and Shaktism (an early form of Hinduism). Indeed, Green Tara statues hold different identities in Mahayana and also Vajrayana Buddhism. Green Tara is sometimes considered to be a female bodhisattva or a female Buddha depending on your perspective. The complexity of this deity seems to be derived from her identities as they are perceived in different countries. Read more about the Goddess Tara here.
