“Dakini” means “sky goer”, one who moves in the sky of the expanse of wisdom. The femininity of the dakini is linked with the symbolism of space or sky and the ability to give birth, or to bring potential into expression. She represents the spontaneous, luminous dance of wisdom. Dakinis manifest in many forms, representing every aspect and level of female energy. They range from beings with some levels of spiritual power to fully realized beings. They help arouse the energy of wisdom in tantric practitioners.
