Iconography of White Tara
White Tara is seen as a representation of the wisdom and liberation brought by all Buddhas. She is seen as a symbol of a motherly compassion that is even more powerful than a mother’s love for her own children, and she is driven to help living beings escape suffering.
White Tara, the Mother of All Buddhas, is renowned for her swiftness in answering the pleas of those who call upon her. Her meditation practice is said to bring about health, long life, courage, patience, and tranquility. People often perform White Tara sadhanas to extend their lifespan and treat sickness. It is believed that since Arya Tara is the collective embodiment of the enlightened activity of all Buddhas, her sadhana is easily accomplished.
