Standing Green Tara statue was hand-carved in copper in Kathmandu by Nepali artisans. Her left hand is extended downward, her palm open, and her thumb and index finger are in contact. Varada Mudra, or the gesture of granting desires, is the name given to this hand position.
Her right hand was raised to shoulder height, fingers extended and her palm turned outward, in a gesture of offering refuge and releasing others from their concerns (Abhaya Mudra). This stunning hand-carved statue is ideal for meditation.
Green Tara is a Buddhist savior-deity who is well-known in Buddhist culture and appears in numerous forms. She is a caring and comforting deity. Her protection extends to navigation, physical travel, and spiritual journeys on the way to Enlightenment.
She took on a human form, with two arms, two legs, and two eyes, to connect with humanity and guide them to Enlightenment.
