Green Tara, the "Mother of all Buddhas" or "Universal Mother". The female counterpart to Avalokiteshvara, embodying compassion in action as we see her ready to step off her lotus throne in order to protect us from the suffering of the world. Green Tara is commonly associated with compassion, protection, action and motherhood as well as physical and spiritual navigation.
"There is a true feminist movement in Buddhism that relates to the goddess Tara... she vowed, "I have developed bodhicitta as a woman. For all my lifetimes along the path I vow to be born as a woman, and in my final lifetime when I attain Buddhahood, then, too, I will be a woman."
- His Holiness the Dalai Lama speaking about Tara
