Known as “She who hears the cries of the World,” Tara will always come to your aid when you call. Savioress, supreme protectress, bestower of longevity, fulfilter of earthly desires and mother of all Buddhas, this great Boddhisattva of compation is here to aweken the heart of lovingkindness in all beings.
The eye in the hand takes on a deeper meaning in the form of the White Tara. Her seven eyes(three on her face, one on the palm of each hand, and one on the sole of each foot) symbolize the vigilance of her compassion. Often shown seated in the meditation posture, her right hand is in the gesture of supreme generosity. Her left hand holds the lotus of compassion with the mudra of the three jewels (Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha). It is said she brings the devotee long life and protects against all dangers.
