Vajrayogini, ‘Diamond Female Yogi' 

The Queen of Dakinis, shown to drink blood which represents the ability to transmute and transform negative actions into positive: anger into clarity, ignorance into wisdom. 

She is a Highest Yoga Tantra Yidam, and her practice includes methods for preventing ordinary death, intermediate state and rebirth, and for transforming all mundane daily experiences into higher spiritual paths. 

She wears skulls because she dances with death and transformation as naturally as the crone, the goddess embracing the power of the sacred feminine.


Shakti is the Goddess or cosmic feminine force and is perceived as Ultimate Power.

Whereas the God or cosmic masculine force is worshiped as SHIVA, meaning peace, SHAKTI is the power of peace.

It is not power born of violence or aggression. It is power born in passivity, in silence of mind, the energy which comes forth from the void, like life that comes forth from the womb.

SHAKTI is not power which is asserted against something, but a power that enlivens everything from within.
