Vajrayogini is a tantric Buddha and a #Dakini. She works for the well-being of others and for the destruction of ego clinging. In this #thangka painting she drinks the blood from the kapala (skull) in her left hand symbolizing her experience of the clear light of bliss. She is an Anuttarayoga Tantra iṣṭadevatā (meditation deity) and her practice includes methods for preventing ordinary death, intermediate state (bardo) and rebirth by transforming them into paths to enlightenment.
Tibetan yoga absorbed aspects of Indian Hatha yoga and Taoist energy cultivation, this ancient practice largely begins where physically-oriented yoga and chi-gong end, by directing prana, or vital energy, toward the awakening of latent human abilities and cognitive states.
