The female Buddha of active compassion who, as the manifestation of the ultimate wisdom of all the Buddhas, is known as the “Mother of the Conquerors.”

She is also known as the “Great Liberator” who pacifies all sickness, poverty, misfortune, fighting, and quarreling and causes the Dharma and all good fortune to flourish.

Her green-colored body symbolizes that she is also the manifestation of the fully purified wind element of all the Buddhas, and like the wind is quick to respond to the prayers of those in need. Her right leg extended also indicates her readiness to help others.

It is said that when Buddha Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion, saw the immensity of suffering in the world he started crying, and Tara was born from a lotus that arose from his lake of tears.

On December 1st, Gen Tenzin will grant the blessing empowerment of Buddha Arya Green Tara.
