With the forthcoming Vajrayogini empowerment, the role of dakinis in our lives becomes more prominent. In this dharma lesson by Dagmo-la, we will learn the role of dakinis in tantric Buddhism, including what functions they uniquely perform and how they interact with other tantric deities. We will learn how we can relate to them, and who the bestknown dakinis are.
