Vajrayogini

In this issue


[Vajrayogini] is the totally developed female aspect energy that lies within all of us, a fully enlightened buddha, the essence of totality-beyond duality, beyond the energy of ego. The purpose of this yoga method is to identify oneself with that divine totality quality. Thus this method strongly emphasizes wisdom, to lead us on the quickest path to enlightenment.

– Lama Thubten Yeshe
