Tara – “Sixth Sense”, Wisdom, Physical and Mental Strength, Spiritual Healing and Tranquility

Tara is the Goddess found both in Hinduism and Buddhism.
She is a “chameleon”; appearing in more than 20 forms and colors. Each color represents different aspects of her personality. The most popular is a Green Buddhists Tara “The One Who Saves” and Blue Hindu Tara “She Who Brings Forth Life.” Sometimes she combines both the blue and green forms, blending them into specific Aqua color. This emphasizes her ability to protect humans while they are swimming through the ocean of existence. The blue shade expresses ferocious and dynamic nature needed for the destruction of obstacles. The green shade represents her protective, motherly like nature; the new-aqua shows her ability to endure stressful moments in life. Tara’s role is to dispel anxiety and use its energy toward courage and generosity. She attains this by uniting good luck with spiritual awakening.

The legend of Tara tells of a young maiden formed of Avalokitesvara’s tear of compassion that landed on the flower of Lotus. This Lotus became a nurturing womb, giving birth to this goddess. Therefore Tara’s favorite flower is Lotus, the symbol of nurture; both physical and psychological.

Goddess Tara is probably the oldest goddess still worshipped extensively in modern times. Her various versions exist in virtually every culture. Tara’s promise to humanity was believe to obtain as many forms as there are needs of her people. She keeps this promise to this day, therefore her presence in the house clears the atmosphere of stress, wards off illness, brings peace and harmony to the soul.

Tara is 20” tall and all crafted, without using any glue or paints. The doll’s body is made of fine, aqua cotton and stuffed with hypoallergenic poly-fiber. Her undergarments (body-suit) is crocheted with sparkly dark green yarn and sewn onto her torso. The face is needle-sculpted, with the eyes and lips hand-embroidered with crochet-threads. The hair is made of various shades of sparkly green yarn, with the crochet-base sturdily sewn onto the head. Some strands of hair are chain-crochet and accented with pearly beads. She is wearing a headgear; a crocheted silver and lotus-color crown. A glossy custom-jewelry pendant is sewn onto the crown. The Aqua-color of the pedant symbolizes chakra of inner wisdom, intuition and foreseeing. Blue glossy beads and crocheted headband accent the whole headgear of the goddess. The doll also wears large metallic earrings with blue lotuses. On her feet are delicately crocheted sandals with gloss beads. She is wearing crocheted anklets and bracelets. Tara’s dress is ¾ long, made of green, sparkly elegant fabric. A sash is draped around her arms and shoulders; the fashion consisted with the Buddhists style. Her sleeves are crocheted and finished with green beads. The bottom of her dress is accented with shimmering lace. A crocheted dark green band with crocheted lotus flower is wrapped around her waist. The smaller lotus is hanging down her dress. She is wearing a beaded necklace wrapped around her neck. Tara is standing on wooden doll-stand decorated with silky flower of lotus symbolizing her birth, tranquility and spiritual growth.
This doll is meant for decorative purpose (not as a toy,) however she is sturdily made and doesn’t contain items that would easily come off.

Additional Information
Tara was created in July 2012.
The character-story posted above is composed by me. It is a compendium of information based on books: “Goddesses and Heroines” by Patricia Monaghan, “Invoke the Goddess” by Carla Trobe, “Goddesses and Angles” by Doreen Virtue. I also used Encyclopedias: Compton, Britannica and online articles. In addition I have reached deep into my memory, recalling folk-tales and legends my grandfather (a Polish country-poet and librarian) once told me.
For the body I used a modified version of the doll-pattern from the book “Cloth Doll Artistry” by Barbara Willis. For face-sculpting, I used technique from the book “Cloth Dolls” by Brenda Brightmore.
The wardrobe ideas came from illustrations included in several books “History of Costume Series – Paper Dolls” by Tom Tierney.
The Index-Card illustrations and the Certificate of Authenticity are collages created by me on Photoshop; using my own photographs and drawings.
