Tara is one of the most important figures in Buddhism, and is a manifestation of the Buddha-nature that exists in all of us.
Tara is a compassionate figure and is the protector of earthly and spiritual travel. She helps followers find their path towards enlightenment. Our gorgeous Small Praying Garden Tara Statue shows Tara seated in prayer. She sits upon a blooming lotus which not only symbolizes her enlightenment, but is also reminiscent of her origin. It is said she came into existence from a tear of Avalokiteshvara, which fell to the ground and formed a lake. From the lake came a lotus, which, upon opening, revealed the goddess.
Add her to your Zen garden so she may aid you on your own journey towards enlightenment.
