Iconography of Green Tara

She is shown with a benevolent countenance seated upon a white moon disk which is associated with special restorative nectar associated with the naval chakra center. In Buddhists, the moon symbolizes the wisdom aspect which when coupled with compassion leads to Sakyamuni Buddha’s enlightenment. Her right hand is gracefully lowered in Varada mudra, the boon-granting gesture.

Green Tara’s special lotus is the blue lotus or ‘night lotus’ which she bears in both hands. The word Utpala means to ‘burst open’. Her left hand holds a stem with an open blooming flower and an unopened bud. The bent lower part of the stem represents the root.

The open blossom represents the present and also the present Buddha; the bud represents the future and also Buddhas yet to be born. The future here also refers to a safe journey’s end and future well-being. Her right-hand wisdom hand is in the gesture of giving refuge.

The third finger touches the thumb to create a circle representing the union of wisdom and compassion, and the three extended fingers symbolize the Three Jewels of Buddhism which are The Buddha State, The Body of teachings, The Principles of the Universe.

The same hand holds the stem of a blue lotus representing her willingness to assist. The closed blossom in her right hand represents the past and also the Buddhas of the past. Green Tara is shown in a place of paradise called Khadiravani where Tara dwells.

Khadiravani is described as a great mountain kingdom with many trees, flowers, and animals rainbow tails emanate from her outer aureole. The crescent moon and sun symbolize the union of male and female ubiquitous in Tantric art.

Iconography of Shakyamuni

His left hand is in the lap holding a begging bowl while the right arm is extended across the leg with the fingers touching the earth.

His skin is golden in color, the eyes partially closed and the hair piled with a gold ornament adorning the top of the head.

A dot (bindi or “urna”) between the eyebrows and the earlobes is elongated and pierced. The shoulders are covered with an orange and red robe wrapped around the torso and legs and tied at the waist with a green sash.

Mantra of Shakyamuni

The mantra of Shakyamuni is Om Muni Muni Maha Muniye Soha.

Iconography of White Tara

White Tara is presented on the bottom left corner of Green tara in the thangka. White Tara’s embodiment of peace is directed through loving compassion. From her serenity, she lends grace and dignity to situations and encourages the good to arise in all circumstances and situations.

The extra eye on her forehead, on the palms of her hands & the soles of her feet, represent her ability to see and understand the sufferings of all beings & her omniscient compassion toward the suffering.

 Mantra of White Tara

The mantra of White Tara is Om Tare Tuttare Ture Mama Ayur Pune Gyana Puntin Kuru Swoha.

Iconography of Saraswati

Saraswati is mostly worshipped for knowledge and education(learning and wisdom). She has one face and two hands holding vina -a stringed instrument and a book.

Her legs are crossed and slightly raised and the vina is placed on her lap. She is white in color, seated on a simply drawn large white lotus.

Her legs are drawn up in an unusual cross ankled posture with her knees raised, presumably a posture for musical performance. She is popular with Buddhist, Hindus, and Jains as well.

The Buddhists regarded as one of the twenty-one emanations of the goddess Tara.

It is said that she will help his disciples to increase wisdom and eloquence. Those who forget the meaning of sentences will immediately get her help in remembering.

She is usually seated on a lotus seat with one leg pendant, playing vina. Since she is primarily associated with Brahma, her vehicle is a swan.

when she is depicted in four arms form, she holds a book, a vina, a rosary, and a lotus. Saraswati is the goddess of learning, wisdom, and music.

Her popularity spreads far beyond the borders of India to Tibet, China, Korea, and Japan.

Her ornaments are simple and restrained, but a narrow, dark green scarf creates a flurry of movement around the figure. It floats in an arc behind her slightly titled head, then winds around her arms and drifts off in a circular maze to left and right.

The harmony of the worldly and the divine seems to express the Buddhist belief that the ordinary and the transcendent(surpassing), samsara and nirvana, are one beautifully balanced reality.
