Guru Rinpoche Padmasambhava Buddha Statue in Kathmandu Nepal (Photo Raimond Kavins.)
Green Tara (left) is similar to Chittamani Tara (right). In fact they are the same being, but differ in visualization. Green Tara normally has one lotus (day lotus normally) in her left hand, blooming over her shoulder, while Chittamani Tara is distinguished by TWO uptala (blue night lotus) flowers, one over each shoulder. Often, online, the two are confused, and the two-flower Chittamani Tara is labeled as Green Tara. (Which, of course, is fine by Tara, since Tara is Tara.)
