Green Tara (Sanskrit:
"Syamatârâ", Tibetan: "sGrol ma ljang
gu") is the embodiment of the activity of all Buddhas. She
offers us a hand to lift us up to a mountain of enlightenment qualities.
Tara belongs to the Karma family of unobstructed compassionate activity.
She is known
as the Swift One, due to her immediate response to those who request
her aid. Furthermore she is known as the great liberator, specializing
in overcoming obstacles in whatever form they manifest in our lives.
No deity in the Buddhist pantheon is more popular than Tara. She
is especially known for her power to overcome the most difficult
situations, giving protection against dangers and all kinds of fear.
