"The call that inspires the spiritual warrior in her journey is the call to discover authenticity and freedom within herself and to embody that in her life. Answering this call does not demand that we divorce our partners, leave our children or renounce our jobs and aspirations. It does require us to question whether the forms and roles we have chosen communicate the values and wisdom we honour."
The meaning of Green Tara is goddess of compassion, and why she sits with one foot extended is because she is ready to come to the aid of the suffering in an instant. She is a goddess of compassionate action and protection.
