Living Buddha Lian Sheng, Lu Sheng-yen had said that, in Tibet, the great Bodhisattva, Green Tara is a savior of this world. Many woman cultivator of Vajrayana Buddhism cultivate the Green Tara Dharma. She sits on the White Lotus. Her vow is Ah Wa Lu Ge De Si Wa La. She was formed from a tear shed for the sentient beings by Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva. This is the reason why she is the most compassionate of all Bodhisattvas.
In Tibet, the Green Tara has 21 transformations. The White Tara and Green Tara are like sisters, both are greatly respected Bodhisattvas and most easiest to obtain response from. Some people cultivate the Green Tara Dharma all their lives and obtained great wisdom. People need only to sincerely recite her name or recite her Mantra to reach cultivation fruition.
The three attainments from cultivation of the Green Tara Dharma are:
1. Transform your heart to the heart of the great compassionate savior as the eternal heart of the Bodhisattva.
2. Will be able to reach enlightenment and recognize Buddha Nature and The Pure Land of Eternal Calm Light.
3. Attain all auspicious wisdom of this world. First, according to forms, obtain worldly fortunes, and then departing from forms to obtain the Pure Land out of this world.
When Shakyamuni Buddha meditated under the Bodhi Tree, it was the Green Tara who sat on top of his head. Therefore this is the lineage from the Green Tara.
