GREEN TARA GODDESS MEANING AND SYMBOLISM:
The goddess Tara a female Buddha, is the Bodhisattva of compassion. She is the center Bhakta figure in Buddhism. She is the deity aspect of a woman who made the Bodhisattva pledge; to remain on the earthly plane and help liberate all sentient beings from the karmic cycle of life, death, and rebirth so that humanity can move to the next level of evolution. In particular She represents compassion in action, since She's in the process of stepping from Her lotus throne in order to help those who call upon Her. The word 'Tara' is derived from the root 'tri' (to cross), implying that She is 'the one who enables living beings to cross samsara, the Ocean of Existence and Suffering'. Her compassion for living beings, Her desire to save them from suffering, is said to be even stronger than a mother's love for Her children. To many who worship Tara She is not only a Buddhist goddess, but also a manifestation of the Divine mother, such as Mother Mary in Christianity or the great goddess Shakti in Hinduism. Her attributes as protector and savioress are similar to those of the Hindu goddess Durga. His Holiness, the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, prays to Green Tara every day because it is believed that when Her compassionate qualities begin to manifest in all of us as individuals, there will at last be peace on earth. Green Tara is swift to respond to those who sincerely call upon Her for help. She is a very necessary deity in this Kali Yuga, 'age of spiritual darkness'. Tara is embodied in all women who help their fellow beings. She may answer your plea by coming to you disguised as your friend, or your mother, or someone else close to you.
As green is the universal color of healing, regeneration, and growth - think of nature - the Green Tara embodies the healing energy of release from fear and ignorance. Human ignorance comes in many forms - from jealousy to pride - and it is the healing energy of Green Tara that brings awareness and relief from these negative aspects. Green is also the color of vibrant energy and activity, which explains one of the aspects associated with Green Tara as the goddess of action. She is often depicted with her right leg extended forward, which symbolizes the action aspect - ready to spring/move forward at any moment.
Another aspect of green color is the freshness and newness of energy, which reflects Green Tara's youthfulness and playfulness. However, the main feature of all Taras - no matter which color expresses their specific energy - is Tara's pledge to being in female form. expresses their specific energy - is Tara's pledge to being in female form.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama mentioned this about Tara: "There is a true feminist movement in Buddhism that relates to the goddess Tara … she vowed, "I have developed bodhicitta as a woman. For all my lifetimes along the path I vow to be born as a woman, and in my final lifetime when I attain Buddhahood, then, too, I will be a woman."
