Our Masterpiece Khadiravani Tara statue has sublime origins. Originally, the Tara Bodhisattva is believed to have been born in a teardrop that fell from the left eye of Avalokiteshvara as he observed the suffering of sentient beings. As a result, she enticed Avalokiteshvara to intercede in their pain and she would be his partner. In Chinese Buddhism, the story evolves differently. It is believed that she was then reabsorbed into his left eye to be reborn at a later time as the Chinese Princess Wencheng.
Furthermore, to this date it is still unclear to scholars whether the origins of Tara lie in Hindu or Buddhist theology. She is worshiped in both Buddhism and Shaktism (an early form of Hinduism). Indeed, Dolma statues hold different identities in Mahayana and also Vajrayana Buddhism. Jetsun Dolma is sometimes considered to be a female Bodhisattva or a female Buddha depending on your perspective. The complexity of this deity is mostly derived from her 21 identities as they are perceived by different Tibetan Buddhist traditions.

This Masterpiece Khadiravani Tara statue was produced with special engravings on her robe, crown and jewels which were done with intricate precision. Additionally, they are lavishly adorned with turquoise and red coral stones. Her face is painted with real gold so it glows with an unequaled ambient luster. As a result, she will bring a sense of calm to any home or meditation center.
Our Masterpiece Khadiravani Tara statue was handmade in Patan, Nepal and is based on Tibetan Buddhism. In Tibetan Buddhism, Jetsun Dolma is given the rank of a full Buddha. Indeed, for many centuries the Nepali sculptors have been the preferred source of the Tibetan Monasteries. As such, I invite you to compare photos of our Tara statue with statues made by other artisans. Learn more here about the 21 identities of the Goddess Tara.
