This Green Tara thanka was painted upon request of the Tara’s Triple Excellence Team to be used as the visualization support for the Inner sadhana “The Essence of the Two Benefits”. Green Tara is the main figure, surrounded by a retinue of eight Taras who grant protection from the eight types of fears. Above them are Buddha Amitabha, Chokgyur Lingpa and Jamgön Kongtrul. Below are the offering goddesses, and in the four corners are the four female gate-keepers.
This thanka for the Inner Tara sadhana has been blessed by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche who supervised its creation together with Phakchok Rinpoche, Khyabje Khenpo and Lama Tenzin Sangpo. It was painted by Urgyen Losel, a monk of Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling monastery.
This thanka and the Inner Sadhana belong to the mind treasure (terma) “Tara’s Profound Essence” from the Chokling Tersar.
It is a high-quality canvas print, adorned in premium-quality silk brocade made in Varanasi.
