artistry expressed with strength and divine grace, this sumptuously cast statue
of Green Tara, the goddess of compassion, she is worshipped as the universal mother,
lucid in its kindness and known as the source of deep refuge. Here she seats in
royal ease, right foot resting on a large lotus, with two full bloom lotus flowers
flaming above her shoulders, her left hand is gracefully arched in vitarka mudra,
and her right hand in charity mudra, her curves and lines reveal the form and
countenance of a graceful young woman; she is youthful and radiates a spiritual
luminosity, with quintessence of compassion and inner peace, she offers compassionate
protection to all sentient being.
