VAJRAYOGINI (Tib. Naro Khachoma)
Vajrayogini, in Tibetan also called Dorje Naljorma, symbolizes the female tantric aspect of the Buddha, embodying the union of bliss and emptiness. Her naked red body represents the transformation of passion and sexual energy into compassion. Her name translates as the “space dancer of Naropa”, relating to her lineage descending from the 11th century mahasiddha Naropa. She is considered the queen of the DAKINI paradise where beings have miraculous powers like levitation and flight.
