Translations:The White Goddess/5/en
The principle symbol of White Tara is the fully-opened lotus, representing the opening of the petals of the chakras. Statues of the White Goddess often show the richness of her raiment. Her crown and earrings symbolize the manifest expression of the abundant life of the Buddha and the Christ. The Mother symbolizes that all things in the Matter universe belong to her children, and so that abundant sense is part of her manifestation. She also shows the renunciate that the real wealth of the cosmos is in the spiritual qualities. The Mother is the one who owns nothing but owns everything, and in this balance we find the discipline of the Buddha.
