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
