White Tara is a Tara that is connected with longevity. The white color indicates purity, and she is the Truth and undifferentiated. White Tara wears the Bodhisattva ornaments. The most important aspect of white Tara is that she has seven eyes: the two usual eyes, plus an eye in the centre of her forehead and eyes in her hands and feet. These indicate that she sees all suffering and all cries for help, even in the human world, even in the worlds of pain, using both ordinary and psychic or extraordinary means of perception. She carries day lotuses. White Tara is also known as Samaya Tara, meaning Vow Tara. This refers to Tara's vow to save all beings. The Green Tara (see our selection - B2002) is a young girl and has a mischievous or playful nature; the White Tara is represented as a mature woman, full-breasted and wise. Size: 7" x 5" x 9".
