Object Literature: Tara is a buddhist deity widely popular in Nepal, Tibet, and Mongolia. She is the feminine counterpart of the bodhisattva Chenrezig and according to the legend she came into existence from a his tear. Out of Chenrezig’s compassion, two tears appeared and one tear became Green Tara and the other tear became White Tara, as emanations to help Chenrezig to accomplish his commitment to help all sentient beings.
