Green Tara

Green Tara (Skt. Śyāmatārā; Tib. སྒྲོལ་ལྗང་, Drol Jang; Wyl. sgrol ljang) — most textual sources seem to agree that this is the main form of Tara and the source of all her other manifestations.[1] In general it is said that Green Tara is the mother of all bodhisattvas, and that she loves all sentient beings just as a mother would. But more specifically, she's connected with enlightened activity.[2]
