We have displayed several images of this Thangka. A special page shows the structure of the painting.

The total sum of 1000 Tara images symbolizes "Infinity", the endless path to liberation or Nirvana. Yet when this huge number is added digit by digit, the total is only equal to "One." This means all our merits accumulated life after life is leading us to one course, that is the purification of "Oneself." Thus Tara here is the deity or Boddhisattva who has gone through this "Infinity" and hereby guiding us towards "One" aim, which is Nirvana. Along the way, all dangers we encountered is warded off by her mercy and protection.
