This thanka depicts all the 21 manifestations of Tara. Tara is often referred to as the Mother of all the Buddhas; she represents the motherly aspect of compassion. Her eyes symbolize the vigilance of her compassion. Seated in the meditation posture, her right hand is in the gesture of supreme generosity and her left holds the lotus of compassion with the mudra of the three jewels (Buddha, Dharma, Sangha).
