Goddess Tara - Nepal...

Posted by
Sunder (Chennai, India) on 10 February 2011 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

Tara holds a very high position in the Buddhist pantheon, she is regarded as the most powerful and popular goddess. Tara is the savior goddess and is also conceived as mother goddess. Tara also means Mahashakti, the great power; she is very popular in Nepal. She is also known as Mahamayuri, the queen of magic arts and the chief of the female protector deities. She is worshipped for longevity of life. Tara (Tib. Dolma) is worshipped for her assistance in aiding the believer to overcome obstacles on the path to enlightenment. She is found in a variety of forms (twenty one are represented), with the most popular being the White Tara or Sveta Tara and Green Tara or Harit Tara.

Asian religions are so complex! I get stuck with "God the father, God the son, God the holy ghost" that's enough for me! Lovely shot. The Lighting is just right to bring out the texture and quality
