Tara takes many forms. In Tibet, these forms included the manifestation of Green Tara as Princess Bhrikuti of Nepal and White Tara Kongjo (Princess Vencheng) as Princess Kongjo of China.
White Tara (Saraswati) is associated with longevity. White Tara counteracts diseases and thus contributes to long life. It embodies the motivation of compassion and is said to be as white and brilliant as the moon.
Green Tara is the incarnation of maternal energy, which brings enlightenment to both the individual and the community. The current presentation of Green Tara comes from Buddhism, circa 7th century.
The green tara (Khadiravani) is usually associated with protection against fear:
- the lions of pride

- snakes representing jealousy
- bandits and thieves representing wrong views, including fanatical views
