STATUE DETAILS Standing Green Tara Statue Bronze Nepalese Vitarka Tribhanga Avalokiteshvara

Standing Green Tara Statue Bronze Nepalese Vitarka Tribhanga Avalokiteshvara



SHE IS TARA

  • A lotus-bearing goddess may represent almost any female deity.
  • Her hands, however, are in vitarka jnana mudras with a lotus.
  • These are the indications she is Tara, an emanation of Avalokiteshvara, the embodiment of Compassion.
  • The beloved Dalai Lama is the incarnate manifestation of Avalokiteshvara.
  • Tara is the great savior and goddess of mercy in the Mahayana tradition.
  • There are 21 Forms of Tara, and within those 21, there are even more subset variations.

HER LEGEND:

  • Tara was born from the compassionate tears of Avalokiteshvara.
  • Avalokiteshvara cried because we humans make such a mess of things so often.
  • The tear that fell from the left eye became Green Tara, the protective deity.
  • The tear that fell from the right eye became White Tara, the Goddess of Long Life.


MUDRAS: VITARKA + JNANA

  • VITARKA mudra: With this gesture, in which the thumb and index finger form a ring, she proves her pure judgement and intellectual wisdom.
  • When she stretches out her hand to you in vitarka mudra, this means she wishes to give instruction.
  • Vitarka means Intellectual argument, discussion.
  • The circle formed by the thumb and index finger is the Dharma Chakra, the sign of the "Wheel of Law".
  • JNANA mudra is vitarka mudra held at the level of the chest .
  • Jnana mudra means "teaching"; the thumb and index finger are, as in vitarka, forming the wheel of law (the Dharma Chakra).

BASE

  • She is standing on a padmapitha padmasana half circle lotus throne base with a single row of lotus leaves.

STANCE

  • Her weight is on her right hip, thrusting her pelvis gently forward.
  • She is standing in "tribhanga" (three curves: hips, shoulders and neck).
  • In this stance, the body weight is supported by one leg, both feet are standing on the ground, with knees stretched and the hip pushed out on the side not supporting the weight.

CROWN

  • She is wearing the crown of the Bodhisattvas, the Kiritamukuta, the highest of all crowns.
  • Hers has five points and five center beads, representing the five dhyani buddhas.
  • Hers is conical cylindrical shape similar to a mitre, and ends in a knot or point.

DECORATIONS

  • She is wearing the YAJNOPAVITA, the sacrificial cord, worn in a loop around the left shoulder and right hip.
  • The Yajnopavita is always part of the clothing of the gods.
  • Hers is specifically a VASTRAYANOPAVITA, a sacrificial cord made of fabric.

     

  • She wears a RATNAMALA, a special necklace with large gems worn around the neck, indicating she is in her benevolent aspect.

     

  • She wears a PHALAKAHARA, a chain that has become longer and longer over time, until it hangs down to her belly with a heavy LAMBAKA, a pendant.

     

  • She is wearing KUNDALA, heavy pendulous earrings worn in the pierced earlob.
  • She also has AVATANSA, other ear ornaments, on her ears.

     

  • She wears VALAYA, bracelets, on both of her upper arms.
  • She wears PADASARA, anklets, on both her ankles.

     

  • Her lower garment is decorated with incised floral motifs.

     

  • Blossoming over her left shoulder is the blooming lotus.
  • This has the design of a tri ratna or cintamani, a three jeweled padma lotus representing the three jewels of the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha.
  • Her chatelaine belt also bears a similar tri ratna design on the center pendant below the navel.
