Green Tara, Harit Tara, the Buddha of Enlightened Activity is Tara's most dynamic manifestation. She is considered the consort of Amoghasiddhi.
Green Tara is portrayed seated on a lotus throne in a posture of ease (lalita asana) with her right leg extended. The left leg is folded in the contemplative position.
Her left hand, in the gesture of refuge, holds the stem of a lotus that floats over her left shoulder as a symbol of purity and power. Tara's right hand is shown in varada mudra (boon-granting gesture) because she is quick to respond to the petitions of those who seek her aid. She is adorned with five jewels symbolizing the five Dhyani Buddhas. She wears six kinds of ornaments including necklace, earrings, bracelets and so forth, symbolizing her perfection of the six paramitas. Her left hand makes the refuge gesture by pressing the thumb and ring finger together, symbolizing the unity of wisdom and compassion. The other three fingers denote the triple jewels: the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha.
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.
