Grüne Tara Tsa Tsa [1]

   Avalokiteshvara Mantra 1: »Oh Mane Padme Hum« Avalokiteshvara Mantra 2: »Oh Mane Padme Hum« Tara Mantra: »Om Tare Tuttare Ture Svaha«

This Tsa Tsa represents the female deity »Green Târâ« [Tib.: »sgrol ljang སྒྲོལ་ལྗང«]. The representation of the goddess is almost three-dimensional compared to other Tsa Tsas. The lower part protrudes from the rest of the surface mt a depth of only 0.28 " | 0.7 cm by 4" | 2.0 cm.

The depiction of the goddess is extraordinarily clear compared to other Tsa Tsas.

In Tibetan Buddhism, the Târâ originated from a tear shed by the bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara as he felt the sufferings of the world.

This is also the reason why this bodhisattva's mantra »Oh Mane Padme Hum« is depicted on the top right and left of the Tsa Tsa.

Likewise the green Tara mantra, »Om Tare Tuttare Ture Svaha«, can be seen twice at the bottom.

Age: Late 19th / early 20th cent.
