Green Tara
On a lotus seat, standing for realization of voidness,
(You are) the emerald-colored, one-faced, two-armed                  
Lady In youth's full bloom, right leg out, left drawn in,
Showing the union of wisdom and art -homage to you!
Like the outstretched branch of the heavenly turquoise                
tree, Your supple right hand makes the boon-  granting               
gesture, Inviting the wise to a feast of supreme                             
accomplishments, As if to an entertainment-homage to                
you! Your left hand gives us refuge, showing the Three                
Jewels   It says, "You people who see a hundred dangers,
Don't be frightened-I shall swiftly save you!"
Homage to you! Both hands signal with blue blue utpala              
flowers, "Samsaric beings! Cling not to worldly pleasures.
Enter the great city of liberation!" Flower-goads prodding             
us to effort-homage to you!

... First Dalai Lama (1391-1474)
The followers of Green Tara believe that her special                   
powers will help overcome dangers, fears, and anxieties,            
and that she will grant wishes. She is also believed to help          
one cross over from danger to safety or from suffering to            
happiness. Her femininity imbues her with soft and                      
compassionate feelings, and she acts very quickly and               
directly as a savioress. Representing active compassion,            
she is particularly worshipped for her ability to overcome             
the most difficult situations.
