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. 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.
