White Tara Thangka
This White Tara Thangka features the female Buddha in Tibetan Buddhism. She is connected with healing and longevity. She is a protective, helpful and comforting mother who shows unlimited kindness, generosity, and protection to those who are tossed into the ocean of suffering. If we recite her mantra and make a connection to her, we draw closer to developing her enlightened qualities within ourselves.
In simple words, White Tara is the Goddess of peace, prosperity, strength, health, and longevity. Her job is to help people from suffering. Presenting a newborn baby with a painting of the White Tara Thangka is considered to carry fortune and wish a long life ahead.
In this Thangka, white color implies purity but is also real, growing, and undifferentiated. The practitioner finds her body to be as bright white as a thousand autumn stars. She has a third eye on her forehead, symbolizing her true view of the nature of absolute reality concurrently with her two eyes seeing the apparent dualistic world of beings. She has extra eyes on her palms symbolizing her kindness with great insight into it.
