Tara represents the entire enlightened activities of all Buddhas and hence she is called the mother of the Buddhas of three times. It is said in a sutra that Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva saved and ferried countless suffering beings over from the sea of birth and death. It happened one day when Avalokiteshvara looked at the misery of the world. He shed tears from his eyes out of great compassion. The tears turned into a lotus flower from which appeared a white and green Tara who said to him, "Please don't be sad. We'll assist you in liberating living beings, although they are countless in number, the power of our vow is also immeasurable".

Since then they had been liberating countless numbers of living beings daily. The name of Tara was thus known to all buddhas in ten directions.

There are 21 forms of Tara (the Saviouress). In reality they are all the transformed bodies of Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of compassion.

Green Tara appears as young beautiful maiden. Her body is green in colour. She has one face and two arms, she wears a crown bedecked with five buddha images. She wears all kinds of bodhisattva ornaments studded with jewels and celestial garments of varied colour. She sits on a lotus throne in Lalita attitude in half lotus posture. Her left hand shows the gesture of refuge vows and right hand the varada mudra because she is quick to answer the petitions of those who seek her aid. Tara is known as the great liberator from eight kinds of danger or fears. The cultivation of Tara sadhana will elimiate all demoniac and karmic obstacles, eradicate disaster and lengthen one'fs life span.
