Green Tara, goddess of the Earth who overcomes obstacles and saves people from danger. Green Tara is Tara's most dynamic manifestation. Her color symbolizes youthful vigor and activity.
The followers of Green Tara believe that her special powers will help overcome dangers, fear and anxieties, and that she will grant wishes. Representing active compassion, she is particularly worshipped for her ability to overcome the most difficult situations.
Her mantra "Om Tare Turare Ture Svaha" is one of the most widely used mantras in Tibetan Buddhism. It works to liberate one from all fears, remove obstacles and facilitate good intentions for the world. It is extremely powerful and the mantra is said to help with the well being of the world in general.
Each of the flags has Green Tara designs along with prayers and mantras. There are 25 large flags in the roll.
The five flag colors represent the five elements: Blue (earth), White (water), Red (fire), Saffron (infinite space), and Green (cosmic winds). Enjoy the slow fading of color as they hang in the elements. To dispose of old flags with respect, please burn them.
