Tara


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Tara, the great Buddhist savior goddess, smiles benevolently as she offers protection to her devotees. With two lotuses attached to her arms, she makes the gesture of discussion with her left hand while holding her right hand in generous bestowal. Regarded by many as the mother of all Buddhas, Tara herself is also a Buddha, a fully enlightened being. Sometimes she is considered a bodhisattva, one who has resolved to reach complete enlightenment and helps others toward spiritual liberation.
