Rebuilding Nepal Through Trade
After the massive earthquakes that tragically struck Nepal in 2015, the people of Nepal are still struggling to heal emotionally and physically.
Relief workers in Kathmandu have told us that one of the most important things we can do to help Nepalese families regain a sense of normalcy is to provide trade so that people can once again wake up in the morning and go to work. We encourage you to support Nepalese artisans and their families by purchasing products marked with the prayer flag icon shown above.
DharmaCrafts has committed to donate 5% of the sales revenue of all Nepalese products throughout 2015 and 2016 to earthquake relief efforts. A large percentage of our donation will go to Roshi Joan Halifax's Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund (NERF) set up through Upaya Zen Center. Upaya's example of engaged Buddhism is inspirational to us and to our efforts. DharmaCrafts will also contribute to the Save the Children Fund.

About Green Tara:
Green Tara is a female Buddha. In fact, she is the manifestation of the wisdom of all the Buddhas, and the goddess who accomplishes their enlightened activities. Her name means "Saviouress," and it is she who comes swiftly to protect all beings from fear.
Tara was once a human being. Through countless lifetimes of practicing compassionate and courageous activities to benefit others, she attained liberation.
Many legends are associated with Tara. It is said that she arose from the tears of Avalokiteshvara, the bodhisattva of compassion, as he wept in despair because he was unable to fulfill his task to save all beings from suffering. Tara consoled him, and offered to assume the form of a female bodhisattva in order to assist him in his noble endeavors.
It is important to remember that we are never separate from Tara. When we call on Tara to grant our needs or to allay our fears, we are calling on the awakened qualities of our own true nature.
Green Tara embodies the the feminine aspect of wisdom expressed through enlightened activity of all the Buddhas. She is the protectoress from fear and mental obscurations. Her right hand, extended in the giving mudra, bestows the common and uncommon siddhis or accomplishments. She is shown holding a vase, symbol of the vase empowerment, for purification. Her left hand is held in the gesture of fearlessness to bestow protection.
