Tārā is a female bodhisattva and an important goddess deity in both Buddhism and Hinduism. More properly, she may be regarded as a set of forms or avatars that represent different aspects of the same qualities, principally those of compassion and sympathetic action. Tārā represents the fundamental female aspect of the universe, which gives birth to warmth, compassion and relief from bad karma as experienced by ordinary beings in cyclic existence (samsara). She engenders, nourishes and has profound sympathy for all living beings, but also acts to relieve suffering wherever she can.
Tārā is considered to be the female aspect of Avalokitesvara (or Chenrezig), the compassionate Buddha, who is incarnated in the Dali Lama. In some origin stories she comes from the tears flowing from Avalokitesvara's left eye, as he perceived for the first time the agonies of the living and cried out that it would be better that his body be broken into pieces and he die, since he was unable to rescue them all. As she took form Tārā declared: "As you are striving for the sake of sentient beings in the Land of Snows, intercede in their suffering, and I shall be your companion in this endeavour!"
