Green Tara on Seated Posture, Female Buddha Deity Statue
This beautiful seated Green Tara, a female buddha deity statue, is hand-carved by Nepali artists in copper and gilded in 24K gold in Kathmandu. She has a calm gaze and a different posture that distinguishes her from other Taras and female deities. She holds a blue lotus blossom in her left hand and her right hand in the giving mudra of generosity. A mudra is a symbolic hand gesture, and the lotus is a reminder that there is beauty even in the darkest of times. She, in particular, has her right leg raised, ready to strike. She is always willing to lend a hand to anyone in need. It states that all you have to do is say her name or the Om Tare Tu Tare Ture Svaha mantra.

Tara's most potent form is Green Tara. Her color represents strength and activity in youth. Amoghasiddhi, the Buddhist Lord of Karma (activity), is also associated with the color green, indicating that they are related. It has reinforced green Tara's reputation as a deity of action.
