Yoginis or Dakinis are an essential part of Vajrayana worship. Their visual representations show them typically as energetic female icons engaged in dynamic postures. On a symbolic level these images signify that the creative exuberance in nature is essentially feminine.

Here she stands in a dancing pose with one foot on a man lying on his back, and with her right leg raised and suspended in the air in an awesome posture. Although an animal skin wraps her hips and thighs, she appears naked. Apart from various jewelry she wears a garland of severed human heads.

Vajradakini is visualized as a lissome, sixteen year old girl, in the full bloom of her youth, radiantly beautiful, full of freshness and vitality. Her intense expression reflects her passionate nature. She has three eyes. Two eyes are the normal ones and the third eye lies at the center of her forehead. This eye symbolizes her ability to view the future in addition to the past and present. Her right hand brandishes a curved flaying knife topped by a vajra, and in the left she holds a skull-cup filled with the brains and entails of the enemies of the Dharma. The curved knife was the instrument used to annihilate these enemies.

Her left shoulder supports a staff known as the khatvanga. This represents her consort Chakrasamvara. This indicates that he and Vajrayogini are inseparable, whether he is explicitly presented together with her or not.

Vajradakini wears a five-skull crown. These five skulls symbolize the first five perfections attainable on the Vajrayana path. These are:

1). Generosity
2). Discipline
3). Patience
4). Effort
5). Meditative Concentration


Delivered by to all international destinations within 3 to 5 days, fully insured.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
