Presenting a striking painting of Goddess Tara who is the tantric manifestations of Durga or Mahadevi, Kali, or Parvati.
In Hinduism, the goddess Tara is the second of the Dasa (ten) Mahavidyas. She is the tantric manifestations of Durga or Mahadevi, Kali, or Parvati. As the star is seen as a beautiful but perpetually self-combusting thing, so Tara is perceived at core as the absolute, unquenchable hunger that propels all life.
This artwork depicts Tara in the forms of Durga and Kali and gives an intriguing story behind the Goddess. The legend begins with the churning of the ocean. Shiva has drunk the poison that was created from the churning of the ocean, thus saving the world from destruction, but has fallen unconscious under its powerful effect. Tara appears as Kali and takes Shiva on her lap. She suckles him, the milk from her breasts counteracting the poison, and he recovers. Shiva assumes the position of an infant vis-à-vis the goddess. In other words the Goddess is Mother even to the Great Lord himself.
