The Lotus Goddess existed in India long before the invasion of the Aryans. When the divine life substance is about to put forth the universe, the cosmic waters grow a thousand-petalled lotus of pure gold, as radiant as the sun. This is the womb of the universe, the generative organ of the waters - the female, maternal, procreative aspect of the Absolute. The lotus is personified as the Mother Goddess through whom the Absolute moves into creation: She stands upon a lotus, which is her 'vehicle'.
The lotus expresses the idea that we are all virtually Buddhas, There are several manifestations of The Lotus Goddess in the Eastern traditions.
The Lotus Goddess, TARA is the patron goddess of Tibet. It is said she was born of a tear shed by Avalokita in pity for the suffering of sentient beings. There are 21 forms of Tara, the two principle embodiments known as the Green Tara & the White Tara.
