On bodhisatvas and skandhas

Posted by M. Hansen , Apr 18,2004,07:47 Post Reply   Forum


I am quite new and ignorant about Buddhism. I should like to
know what are the five skandhas and what is the role of Manjusri
and Amitabha? Are they bodhisattvas like Avalokitesvara?
I have got as a present a thangka representing the Green Tara.
I know she is a bodhisattva of compassion, but what is the difference between the green Tara and the white one?
