Tara is the female buddha(bodhisattva) in Buddhism. The Tibetan ancient mantra of om tare tuttare ture soha is related to Tara (especially the Green Tara). Some even say that she is the "Mother of all Buddhas". Green Tara is simply the colossal Bodhisattva that always represents herself in a female form, who made a pledge to incarnate in a female form to profit the creatures until she gained enlightenment.
She is the representation of virtues of success and achievements. Being the Goddess of Compassion, her followers often ask her for relieving them of physical, emotional and spiritual suffering.
