White Tara Batik Wall Hanging
In Buddhism, White Tara is more than a goddess, she is considered to be a female Buddha, the soul of compassion, and she is a protector for long life as well. This is a beautiful batik wall hanging created with many colors and accented in gold. The design may vary somewhat from that pictured.
Goddess Tara is one of the oldest goddess who is still worshipped extensively in modern times. Tara originated as a Hindu goddess, the Mother Creator, representing the eternal life force that fuels all life. There are many embodiments of Tara, but the best known are the White Tara and the Green Tara. The peaceful, compassionate White Tara gently protects and brings long life and peace. In Sanskrit, the name Tara means Star. Adopted by Buddhism, she become the most widely revered deity in the Tibetan pantheon. In Buddhist tradition, Tara is actually much greater than a goddess -- she is a female Buddha, an enlightened one was has attained the highest wisdom, capability and compassion, one who can take human form and who remains in oneness with the every living thing. The oldest reference to the goddess Tara, perhaps, is found in an ancient saga of Finland thought to be 5 million years old. The saga speaks of a group known as Tar, the Women of Wisdom.
