"So those three things Dakini asks us to have, and she protects us from getting sidetracked from those basic ingredients on our DAKINI JOURNEY. The point of this teaching is not to develop superstitious ideas about Dakini but to develop our ability to attune ourselves to this consistent source of blessings of Dakinis, which is always available. These blessings are passed down to us through our teacher and our lineage masters, in the form of Dakinis. Dakinis always bring us the blessings of support, encouragement, confidence, trust, and protection, as well as challenges and discipline." (page 144, 5.5 DAKINIS PROTECTION FOR GENUINE PRACTITIONERS, Volume II of the Heart of Cho: DAKINI JOURNEY in the Contemporary World)
Teachings and practice from this weekend's offerings with Khandro-la reached into our shadow depths and brought up the debris into the light. Regardless of what surfaced, we learned about Dakini protection and why we need that as we sift through our lives.
