Chenrezig, White Tara and Green Tara: Three in One Thangka Painting

In this thangka painting, Green Tara or Dolma, a female Buddhist deity linked to enlightened activity and abundance is seated in a playful posture. She is revered as the great liberator who all rescues beings from the eight great fears aroused by elephants, lions, snakes, robbers, fire, water, demons, and the government. 

In her hands, she is holding utpala flowers, symbolizing her purity. Her color is green because her bodhisattva activity is swift like the wind element. Her right hand is in the Varadamudra because she is quick to respond to the petitions of those who seek her aid. She is adorned with five jewels on her crown symbolizing the Dhyani Five Buddhas. 

Born from the tears of Avalokiteshvara, she embodies compassionate and action-oriented Bodhisattva or Buddha. Revering Green Tara helps elevate physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing. 

In the central part of the painting, we see White Tara, placed between Green Tara and Avalokitesvara creating an illusion of space. This painting also illustrates the birth of White Tara and Green Tara. 

White Tara who is born from the teardrop of Chenrezig’s right eye, is revered for long life. She blesses people with long life so that they can spend gathering merits to get to the higher realms. 

Avalokitesvara, who is also revered as Chenrezig translates to "The one who looks with an unwavering eye". Chenrezig is revered as the embodiment of the compassion of all Buddhas devoted to freeing all sentient beings from the circle of Samsara.

Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara is depicted with multiple arms. In this thangka painting, Chenrezig is depicted with four arms. His multiple arms represent his commitment to helping as many people as possible.

His first two hands at the front hold a Chintamani. Likewise, his upper right-hand holds akshamala (beads). Further, his upper left-hand holds a lotus symbolizing the virtue and his compassion to free all beings. Finally, Bodhisattva is seen wearing silk garments, and his legs and seated on a row of lotus petals.

 As Avalokitesvara is a bodhisattva of compassion, who brought White Tara and Green Tara into existence, he is portrayed in the upper-right space of this thangka painting.

About this Thangka Painting
