The ghau is a kind of transportable altar in which the image of the chosen deity of the possessor is kept, wrapped in silk garments. The vast majority of Tibetans use the ghau at home and carry it during their travels. They keep it on a real altar at home. During travels, it is hung on the back belt. It serves as a protective symbol during travels and also allows its owner to prove his devotion to his deity.

White Tārā, Tibetan, Dolma Karpo, Sītā Tārā, the White Liberator but also, luminous, clear, is one of the forms of the 21 known Tārā. She is a deity of Tibetan Buddhism. It symbolizes the activity of pacification, and more particularly grants longevity and health. His mantra is often recited with someone in mind. It also expresses compassion, and it is represented with seven eyes to signify the vigilance and omniscience of the spirit inhabited by this compassion (karuna).
The Sanskrit root târ- means "to cross" or "to cross" as by using a bridge to cross a stream. In the Indian Orthodox sacred tradition, Tara refers to the second of the ten means of realization. And as Shri Tara Devi, she is the deification of this Mahavidya, according to Hindu Tantra. As A Târîni, she carries you through. In other words, it serves as a bridge for you to reach immortality. But the tar- root can mean "tree" and "especially," and it's also related to "star" and "pupil of the eye."
In Tibetan, it is called Dolma or Do'ma , although often we see Drolma because it follows the Tibetan spelling (a little more; if we transliterate, it is actually sgrolma.)
Tara in its white form is distinguished by its White body, like an autumn moon; clear as a stainless crystal jewel, radiating light. She has one face, two hands, three eyes. She is described in textbooks as having the youth of 16 years. Her right hand makes the gesture of giving gifts, and with the thumb and ring finger of her left hand, she holds a branch of white utpala, her petals at the level of her ear.
There are three flowers at various stages of growth symbolizing the three times (past, present and future). The first flowering that is seeded, usually on the right, represents Buddha Kashyapa who lived in a past eon; the second in first bloom represents the historical Buddha Shakyamuni, whose activity brought you here today, and the bud on the left symbolizes the future Buddhas - the expected one is the Maitreya Buddha.
Her hair is dark blue, bound to the back of her neck in the back with long hanging braids; her breasts are full; she is adorned with various precious ornaments, her blouse is of silk of different colors, and her robes are of red silk, the palms of her hand and the soles of her feet each have an eye, constituting the seven eyes of knowledge; she sits upright and firm on the circle of the moon, legs crossed in the diamond posture.
White Tara is called "Mother of All Buddhas".
