Tibetan Buddhist Goddess White Tara

Tibetan Buddhist Goddess White Tara
Tara or Jetsun Dölma in Tibetan is known as the mother of liberation, an important figure in Buddhism. She appears as a boddhisatva or as a Buddha in various traditions of Buddhism. Tara is also mostly associated with success and achievements. She is also a meditation deity and is known for her 21 manifestations, each of which has a different color, and one of which is the White Tara. A close look at this thangka shows the white Tara in sitting position. Tara's name means star and in this painting she is depicted against a backdrop of blue skies with clouds, noting her association with travel across spiritual sides of existence.

A quick zoom on the painting shows the imagery of her surroundings filled with foliage and flowers, showing her association with nature as a forest goddess. The painting shows the White Tara in a meditating diamond-seated position. Amitabha, a Buddha known for longevity, is portrayed as seated in White Tara’s headdress or slightly above her head. Seven eyes can be counted on her form as seen in her third eye on the forehead, on each palm, and on each foot, which symbolizes her compassion for seeing the suffering of the world. The White Tara is also revered for her compassion, for guidance on long life, as well as healing. Her other name is Wishful Wheel or Cintachakra, further symbolizing with her left hand in a protective pose while her right is in a blessing pose. The blue flowers on her hand have three blooms that represent a seed, one ready to bloom, and a third in full bloom for the Buddha's past, present, and future. On her head is Amitabha, a Buddha long life
