This Tara has the lovely, quiet and focused energy of making an offering. Place a candle, flowers, or whatever you like on her offering tray. Within Tibetan Buddhism Tārā is regarded as a bodhisattva of compassion and action. The same as Quan Yin. She is the female aspect of Avalokiteśvara and in some origin stories she comes from his tears. When he cried in despair at not being able to honor his promise to save all beings, the Tara’s sprang from his tears to help him. Tara resolved to save all beings. She also resolved to become enlightened. Statue is 17" tall.
