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.
