This lovely and handsome thangka depicts a powerful image of Sarvabuddhadakini or Naro Dakini. Dakinis or Yoginis are skywalkers (a witch or fairy who wanders in the air), in some cases celestial female beings, and sometimes, earthly women who possess supernatural wisdom and powers. They have initiated, taught, and assisted many great Indian and Tibetan yogis in performing esoteric Vajrayana rituals. For every dhyani Buddha there is an affiliated dakini. A Sarvabuddhadakini, however, has access to all the Buddhas and thus is more powerful. Also known as Naro Dakini, this form of Vajrayogini or Dakini is the preeminent form of Yogini in the Chakrasamvara and Vajravarahi Tantras. She manifested herself in an initiatory vision to the great Indian Teacher and Mahasiddha Naropa, (A.D. 956-1040) who received teachings from her, and his disciples began calling her Naro Dakini or Vajrayogini Naro Kha Chod or Naro Sky Goers. Moreover she is patroness of Sakya sect and an acolyte of the Dakini Vajravarahi.

The teaching of Naro Dakini is mentioned in the Heruka and Vajravarahi Tantras. She insists that all female beings in the universe are her embodiments or manifestations and thus should be respected, honored and served without exception. She takes form so that women, seeing enlightenment in female form will recognize their innate divinity and potential for enlightenment. Devotion to her should be expressed as respect for women, while respect for women provides a way of measuring devotion to the goddess. She also promising her blessing to a man who worship her as per instructions mentioned in the Vajrayogini Sadhana.

In the present painting she is dancing in alidha on two personages on a lotus throne. Her body is red, the color of intense emotion and sensuality. She is very youthful looking and is untamed. She has a beautiful shape with large pointed breast and firm nipples. Her face shows the same grimness as her Yogini figure. With her three eyes she can see past, present, and future. Her eyebrows and hair on her face are flamed-shaped. Her hair is partly upswept in a knot and partly falls in loose on her back. She is wearing a crown of skulls with jewels and bone ornaments on her arms and feet and bone apron on her body. Moreover she is wearing gold earrings. She is naked except her ornaments, which helps to concentrate one's attention on the expressiveness of her movement. There is an arch-shaped aureole behind her with protective fire fence. Sarvabuddhadakini is holding a vajra chopper in her right hand, there is a skull cup filled with blood that she is bringing to her lips. On her left shoulder, rests, a magic stick or khatvanga staff. There is a green-skinned double-headed pellet drum (damaru) with a dangling bell, hanging from her khatvanga by a banner, symbolizing her nondual union with Chakrasamvara. The chopper, which has half vajra for handle and curved iron blade, is actually a butcher's knife. It is also used to cut up corpses that will receive what is called a 'skyburial', in which the cut-up flesh is eaten by vultures and other birds. The ritual meaning in Tantricism lies in the extension of this. It signifies cutting earthly ties and thus crossing into the liberated state. The kapala or skull cup with blood symbolizes a similar breaking of ties with samsara and also the acceptance of this sacrifice by the Yogini who thereby positive indication that will work with yogi.

The upper corners depict beautiful blue sky with clouds and sun and moon. The middle and foreground portrays lovely mountainous landscape with trees, natural vegetation, waterfalls and lakes etc. There is a wrathful offering at the bottom center. The painting is very much suitable for esoteric practices and rituals.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely.
