Green Tara - The Feng Shui Goddess



By - Shubhaangi Abhay Pant (Feng shui Expert)


Tara is the most important female deity of the Buddhist pantheon. She is the mother goddess of compassion. Tara was born of a single tear of compassion shed by Avaloketishwara on seeing the sufferings of humanity. Tara is thought to have insisted that she remain in female form whilst functioning as a Bodhisatva, assisting all sentient being in overcoming difficulties on their road to enlightenment.


Tibetan Buddhism numbers 21 Taras, often featuring seven all-seeing eyes of compassion. Tara is believed to protect human beings while they are crossing the ocean of existence. Her right hand is in the blessing posture: boon giving position and left hand: is in teaching gesture/ holding a lotus.

There are many different types of Tara. There is Red Tara, which is supposed to bring harmony, Black Tara which gives power, Blue Tara which is good for controlling anger, and the Yellow Tara which is associated with wealth and prosperity. Of course there are many more, but these are the most well known.

Green Tara is associated with the Air Element. She embodies female wisdom as the "Swift Saviour" due to her readiness to protect us from negative forces and help us avoid negative karma. SHE IS THE OVERCOMER OF OBSTACLES. Worship of Green Tara is thought to bring quick thinking, spontaneity and wisdom in our actions, generosity, magical perfection and fearlessness.

Her short mantra is:

"OM TARE TUTTARE TURE SVAHA"


Her regular icon shows her sitting on a lotus but with her right foot extended in readiness for speedy action. Her right hand is extended downwards in the position which grants accomplishment. Her left hand is shown with the thumb and the ring finger touching - the gesture for granting protection and freedom from fear. She has lotus flowers blooming at her shoulders.

Green Tara promotes growth, solves practical problems and protects our everyday world. Black and red Trans are fiercer guises. But even in her wrathful aspect, Tara's role is to dispel the fear of death and foster the evolution of compassion. You can evoke quite strength of Buddhism by placing any of the green Tara Icons or photos. You can also carry a small photo of Green Tara, to overcome obstacles.

It is best to carry the Tara Card in your purse for personal safety and good luck.
