2.0) The 5 Dakini Meditation by Helen Puk and William Duncan
“Dakinis are dancers of the illusory magical display. They enact the connections that awaken us to our nature. They are not ordinary individuals limited to certain capabilities and stuck with one identity. They are totally free in their movements, possess infinite skillful means and are accessible everywhere. When we need them and call, the teachings say the dakinis are very active and respond immediately, coming forward to offer help, support, and enlightened energy. Both externally and inwardly, the dakinis are very dynamic and unbound in their movements.”
Venerable Khenpo Tsewang Rinpoche
