Green Tara is associated with the Air Element. She embodies female wisdom as the “Swift Saviour” due to her readiness to protect us from negative forces and help us avoid negative karma. She is the over comer of obstacles. Worship of Green Tara is thought to bring quick thinking, spontaneity and wisdom in our actions, generosity, magical perfection and fearlessness.
Tara is the most important female deity of the Buddhist pantheon. She is the mother goddess of compassion.Tara was born of a single tear of compassion shed by Avaloketishwara on seeing the sufferings of humanity. Tara is thought to have insisted that she remain in female form whilst functioning as a Bodhisatva, assisting all sentient being in overcoming difficulties on their road to enlightenment. You can find her image in many feng shui adornments – from embroideries to colourful sculptures.
Her regular icon shows her sitting on a lotus but with her right foot extended in readiness for speedy action. Her right hand is extended downwards in the position which grants accomplishment. Her left hand is shown with the thumb and the ring finger touching – the gesture for granting protection and freedom from fear. She has lotus flowers blooming at her shoulders.
Why and how is the energy of Green Tara used in feng shui?
At first glance, the energy of Tara is very similar, if not identical to the energy of Kwan Yin . Tara is called the goddess of compassion and the mother of liberation. However, the energy of Tara also encompasses action as reflected in success or specific achievements.
What specific results does the Green Tara help to accomplish?
As green is the universal colour of healing, regeneration and growth – think of nature – the Green Tara embodies the healing energy of release from fear and ignorance. Human ignorance comes in many forms – from jealousy to pride – and it is the healing energy of Green Tara that brings awareness and relief from these negative aspects. Green is also the colour of vibrant energy and activity, which explains one of the aspects associated with Green Tara as the goddess of action. She is often depicted with her right leg extended forward, which symbolizes the action aspect – ready to spring/move forward at any moment.
