"Dakini declares, "The more emptiness, the more bliss! The more bliss, the more emptiness! It's like a snowball effect!"
We know that bliss is a state that focuses the mind, sharpens our felt and sensory perceptions, and brings clarity and lucidity. As we bring our mind to that bliss level of alertness, awareness, and sensitivity, we can perceive its emptiness. Even in our ordinary experience, when we have a tremendous blissful experience, we have a chance to let go of the habitual clinging to the self. In that openness, the absence of the self, there is an opportunity to perceive the emptiness of self and reality." (page 211, Volume II of The Heart of Cho: DAKINI JOURNEY in the Contemporary World)
Dakini speaks to us through authentic sources, like our very own Khandro-la, which provides no citations to the radical truth Dakini gifts us with. Many people seek some type of convoluted means to an end, but here we realize Dakini is not complicated at all - if we just allow her to speak to us! From that authentic place, we move in the fierce playfulness of Dakini gifted to us through our teacher!
