White Tara, Bronze
White Tara is a female deity of the Buddhist pantheon. She was born from a tear of the bodhisattva of compassion, Avalokitesvara. She is regarded as his consort.
White Tara is usually portrayed seated, dressed and crowned in the precious ornaments of a boddhisattva. She has seven eyes, with the extra eyes on her forehead, the palms of her hands and soles of her feet. She has a lotus flower at her shoulder and is seated in full vajra posture. Her right hand is in boon-conferring posture, her left hand in teaching gesture holding the stem of the lotus.
White Tara is very beautiful. Anyone can appeal to her, as she helps all sentient beings cross 'the ocean of samsara'. The practice of White Tara is to heal and prolong life.
