Sita Tara, a Bodhisattva of activity and compassion, is associated with practices for prolonging life and overcoming severe hardships. She is revered by Vajrayana Buddhists for cultivating the traits of compassion (karu), loving-kindness (mett), and emptiness (shunyata). Sita Tara is pictured sitting cross-legged on top of a blue lotus (Utpala) moon seat in a yogic posture. She is recognisable by her seven eyes—three of which are on her forehead and the other four on the palms of her hands. These eyes represent her sensitive attentiveness, keen insight, and genuine compassion. Sita Tara is also known as Arya Tara, Shayama Tara, Jetsun Döolma, Tara Bosatsu, and Duluo Psa.

Buddhist Gods main description
The Buddhist pantheon comprises hundreds of Gods and Goddesses. They are intended to illustrate the multiple aspects of enlightenment, including its wrathful and furious sides, as well as its peaceful and beneficial aspects. In Mahayana Buddhism, gods, goddesses, and other spiritual beings play a much bigger role than in Theravada Buddhism. They symbolize the energies, forces, and entities that surround and fill human life. They also mirror the human spirit's deeper depths, reflecting attributes that can be awakened through spiritual practice. Voluptuous tree spirits, maternal nurturers, elevated knowledge figures, benevolent healers, potent protectors, cosmic mothers of liberation, and dancing female Buddhas are all part of the pantheon. Childbirth, agriculture, fortune, longevity, art, music, knowledge, love, magic, and occult rituals are all overseen by gods, goddesses, and other spiritual beings. Some of them protect against diseases, snakebites, demons, curses, untimely death, and all other fatal dangers. There are also gods, goddesses, and other spiritual beings that aid practitioners in their quest for knowledge, mental cleansing, higher rebirth, and complete spiritual enlightenment.
