Green Tara (Dölma) embodies the female wisdom and activity of the mind. She is also called the 'Mother of All Buddhas,' and has many peaceful and frightening or wrathful emanation forms.
The legend of Tara's origin is that Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion, was looking down from his heaven on the world of suffering beings, and he wept to see that more and more of them were in pain. From the tears streaming down his face two Taras were born, a peaceful white one from the left and a fierce green one from the right.
Her attributes are light blue upala-flowers . She is adorned with jewels and precious cloth, sitting on a white moon-disk. Her right leg is outside the lotus flower, which symbolizes her continuous activity, alertness and her determination for quick active help. Her hands are in the gesture of granting protection and freeing from fears.
