Tara is a Bodhisattva that was born out of a teardrop that fell from the eye of Avalokitesvara. Indeed Tara is one of the world’s most popular female Bodhisattvas. There are 21 emanations of Tara. Our White Tara statue is also known by the name “cintachakra” which means “wish fulfilling wheel”. Additionally, devotees believe that White Tara has the ambient glow of 1000 white moons.
Tibetan Buddhists believe that White Tara has a playful nature when appropriate. For example, if a practitioner is taking their Dharma commitments too seriously then she will appear to them in order to lighten up their self righteousness. Also, White Tara has been known to play pranks on those who do not respect her feminine attributes. Indeed, the Bodhisattva Tara has committed herself to only being reincarnated as a female until there are more female Buddhas.
White Tara Statue Features
Our White Tara statue is fully adorned in the elegance of the Bodhisattva crown and jewels. Additionally, she displays the 3 neck lines, the Ushnisha topknot and she sits in full lotus pose on the single lotus pedestal. However, our White Tara statue’s most unique feature are her 7 eyes. Indeed, White Tara is also called “7 Eyed” due to their mystical nature. Each of her seven eyes is placed in order that all of her thoughts and actions will be governed by insight wisdom and virtue. White Tara is also strongly affiliated with long life, healing, serenity and compassion.
The two lotus flowers blossoming over her shoulders are another elegant and feminine element of our White Tara statue. However, the lotus flowers are not only meant as beautiful adornments. The lotus flower is very significant in Buddhism because it represents the awards of Nirvana that await devotees who are true to their Dharma practice.
