Samaya Tara Thangka

About Our Thangka :

This elaborate painting of Samaya Tara took over 6 months for the artist to complete. Contemporary Eri Style Artist Mr.Chhewang Lama completed this painting in late October 2018. (Note Eri Style developed from the Ü and Tsang Provinces of Tibet since the early 19th century.)

Mr. Lama was born in the spring of ox wood year 1985 in a remote village of Kavre Palanchowk. He started painting thangkas from an early age and learned the basics and advanced skills from his mentor Master artist Mr.Man Bdr.Lama. Mr. Chhewang still considers himself a student of this sacred art form and still seeks to learn from his master although he has been training under him for over 20 years now. Apart from painting thangkas, he has also used his skills to paint the murals of a monastery located at Namo Buddha – one of the holiest Buddhist pilgrimage sites.

Introduction To Samaya Tara :

Green Tara or Samay Tara is often known as the great liberator who rescues beings from the eight great fears aroused by Elephants, lions, snakes, robbers, fire, water, demons and the government. She is one the Bodhisattvas that Avalokiteshwora created from a drop of his tear.

In this painting, Green Tara is seated in a playful posture. Her right hand is in the Varadamudra because she is quick to respond to the petitions of those who seek her aid. She is adorned with five jewels symbolizing the Dhyani Five Buddhas. In both her hands she is holding Utpala flowers, symbolizing her purity. Her color is green because her Bodhisattva activity is swift like the wind element
