Tara (Star) or simply Drol-ma in Tibetan, goddess of protection and compassion, is one of the widest worshipped deity in Tibet, Tara is the bodhisattva representing the miraculous activities of all buddhas. In myth she is born from Chenrezig's (sanskrit: Avalokitesvara, the male counterpart similar to Tara) tears of compassion or from her own vow to be enlightened and stay a woman. There are innumerable manifestations of Tara, manifesting in so many ways as sentient beings may require, but her most famous are the peaceful WHITE TARA, who brings protection, long life and peace; and the dynamic GREEN TARA, who overcomes obstacles and saves beings in dangerous situations in the most immediate manner. Tara also manifests in the 21 forms of Taras.
