Dakini — Goddess of Life’s Turning Points. Dakini is the supreme embodiment of highest wisdom and the most potent manifestation of feminine divinity in Tibetan Buddhism. Her name means Sky Dancer, sky being a womb symbol connoting emptiness, creativity, potentiality. Dakini serves as instigator, inspirer, messenger, even trickster, pushing the Tantrika (aspirant) across the barriers to enlightenment. Her wrathful aspect is depicted by the mala of skulls, her peaceful aspect by the lotus frond. Like Hindu goddess Kali, her role is to transmute suffering. Her left hand holds high the lamp of liberation.
