More information about White Tara Conch Shell Sankha With White Metal 6" C x 6.5" H

A Sankha is a conch shell of ritual and religious importance in Hinduism and Buddhism. It is shell of large predatory sea snail, found in the Indian ocean. Sankha is still used as trumpet in Hindu ritual, and in the past was used as a war trumpet. The sankha is praised in Hindu scriptures as a giver of fame, longevity and prosperity, the cleanser of sin and the abode the goddess Lakshmi, who is the goddess of wealth and consort of Vishnu. The sankha is one of the eight auspicious symbols of Buddhism, the Ashtamangala, and represents the pervasive sound of Buddhism. 
 
Tara is a female deity of the Buddhist Pantheon. White Tara was born from a tear of the Boddhisatwa of compassion, Avalokiteswara. She holds a very prominent position in Tibet and Nepal. Tara is believed to protect the human beings while they are crossing the ocean of existence.
Among the two forms of Tara, White Tara is regarded as consort of Avalokiteswara, some times of Vairochana. She is portrayed usually seated, dressed and crowned like a Boddhisatwas. And sometime she is regarded as Saptalochana or seven eyes Tara. Extra eyes on her forehead, palm and feet and lotus flower at one or both of her shoulder. She is seated in full Vajra posture. Her right hand will be in boon confering posture, her left hand in teaching gesture holding the steam of the lotus. She is wearing all sorts of precious ornaments and looks beautiful. The practise of White Tara is basically performed into prolong life as well as for healing purpose.
