There are 21 manifestations of Tara, and the most important two are White Tara and Green Tara. Characteristic of her appearance are the seven eyes in head, palms of her hands and soles of her feet, and she sits in a complete lotus position. In her right hand she is holding the stalk of a blue lotus. The 21 verses of Green Tara are recited monthly in all Buddhist spiritual communities to solve obstacles. The reciting of the mantra of Green Tara neutralizes inner outer and secret fears. The mantra reads: Om Tare Tuttare Ture Svaham (pronounced: Soham).
