Online Reference For Body, Mind & Spirit

Term: Dakini

DEFINITION:
In ancient Tibet, a Dakini was a terrifying spirit or demon that would appear to magicians during their rituals. Volatile and wrathful, they may test the magician. In India, the term is often translated as “sky walker” or “sky dancer.” Dakinis are pictured as beautiful, sensuous, and naked (indicating they have been stripped of anything that might limit their spirituality). They also represent transformation and energy. Some modern women Neo-Tantric practitioners refer to themselves as “Dakinis” (Male=“Dakas”) meaning “Tantric goddess.”
