Green Tara is the most dynamic manifestation among all Taras. Her green body color signifies her association with the family of the Buddha Amoghasiddhi, the Transcendent Buddha of the north. He transmutes the poison of envy and turns it to the positive energy of all-accomplishing wisdom. Green Tara sits on а lotus, her right leg extending beyond and leaning on the lotus.
All the attributes of Manjushri point to the wisdom that he personifies. His double-edged sword cuts through obscuring layers of misconception and discriminates accurately between the independent way things mistakenly appear to exist and the interdependent way they actually do exist. The Perfection of Wisdom Sutra he holds, treasured as Buddha’s most profound statement on the ultimate nature of reality, is a further indication that Manjushri’s penetrating insight is of the highest order.
