Khadiravana Tara (Khadira Forest Tara [Latin: Acacia Catechu]):
"Green Tara. The right [hand in the gesture of] supreme generosity and the left holding an utpala. With the same ornaments, garments and sitting posture. At the right is yellow Marichi, holding in the left [hand] a branch of the ashoka tree. At the left is black Ekajati, holding in the left a skullcup. Both hold yak-tail fans with the right [hand]. Having jewels and silk garments [and] standing [with the legs] straight." (Bari Gyatsa).
