Dakini Day, or Day of the dakinis, “those who fly in space.” The dakinis symbolize the female energy of enlightenment and are the inspiration of the great yogis. On this day, female energy is at its peak.—Phillipe Cornu, Tibetan Astrology
On Dakini days, In the Chokling Tersar tradition, we frequently practice the magnetizing lotus Dakini, Pema Khandro, or Kurukulle. Our partners at Akara Collection have produced this beautiful Kurukulle Thangka at Phakchok Rinpoche’s request.
