    TARA

    White Tara

    Tara is one of the few female bodhisattvas among the Buddhist deities. Historical records of Tara begin around the 6th century CE. She most likely evolved from Hindu Goddess Parvati or Braham Goddess Durgaa. Legend states that when the God Avalokiteshvara looked out upon the work and saw all the suffering and despair, he wept. His tears collected into a pond which grew a single lotus. The lotus bloomed and upon it was Tara. She was born to bring compassion into the world.
