Green Tara is the feminine embodiment of enlightenment and a manifestation of the Buddha-nature that exists in all of us. Her female form represents wisdom, and she is called the Mother of all Buddhas. Tara comes swiftly to the aid of those in need. She is the liberator from karmic obstacles and fear. The mantra of Green Tara is Om tare tuttare ture svaha
