Dakini Activity: The Dynamic Play of Awakening

Aug 24, 2018 - Aug 25, 2018, 7:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Marcia Schmidt is the editor of Dakini Activity: The Dynamic Play of Awakening by Padmasambhava, Lingpa Dechen Chokgyur Rinpoche and Orgen Topgyal Rinpoche, which will be released later this year.


The source of activity is the dakini and there are five kinds of activities, peaceful, increasing, magnetizing, subjugating, and the supreme activity. The primary way to perfect these is through dakini practices, and among dakinis, there are the wisdom dakinis, in space, and worldly dakinis.

These practices can be condensed into those of the three roots — the source of blessings is the lama, the source of accomplishment is the yidam, and the source of activities is the dakinis. The one who carries out the activities for the lama and the yidam is the dakini, in other words, the virtue of blessings and accomplishment is the activity, which is the dakini.
Kurukulle practice connects us with magnetizing practices, only present in Vajrayana, which we do to magnetize the teachings on how to realize the view, to magnetize the meditation, and the conduct.
