Gypsum-stone Tibetan Buddhism Dakini Sky Dancer, Female Embodiment of Enlightened Energy, Wall Hanging Decor Hand-finished Bronze Hand-painted Finish 6.5”
The dakini is a tantric figure representing a female embodiment of enlightened energy. The Tibetan form of dakini, khandroma, translates as 'she who traverses the sky' or 'she who moves in space' or, more poetically, as 'sky walker' or 'sky dancer'.
In the Tantric Buddhism of Tibet, the Dakini embodies the Wisdom Principle of Buddha enlightenment, for which reason she is said to be the Consort of all the Buddhas. More generally, in terms of Tibetan Buddhism, the Dakini represents the feminine principle that is outside the control of patriarchal society and the rational male ego consciousness. For this reason, the Dakini may be represented as alluring and enchanting, but also as wrathful and terrifying and dangerous to men
One of the roles of a dakini is as a wisdom protector. In Vajrayana Buddhism or “esoteric” Buddhism, the enlightened dakini is the third of 3 Roots. She is the conduit — even sometimes the very matrix or source — of enlightenment and auspiciousness.
