What is Green Tara?

Green Tara is a Tibetan Buddhist savior-goddess. She is the goddess of compassion.  She is compassion in action and symbolizes what Melle and Stacy endeavor to do in their work with the skin and the body. Green Tara was born from a tear shed by the Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara upon viewing the suffering of beings.  When his tears formed a lake, a lotus sprung up and when it opened, Tara was revealed. Green Tara is believed to help her followers overcome dangers, fears and obstacles. She is intensely compassionate and acts quickly to help those who call upon her.
