Thought it would be good to alert anyone interested that Tuesday is Dakini Day in the Tibetan calendar, one that is very auspicious and can be useful on the path. This also coincides with Andrew’s just-released interview with Lama Palden. Be sure to check it out! To find out more about Dakinis and the celebration, see the link below the calendar page.
From the article:
Without contradiction to their role as exemplars of Emptiness, Dakinis can also represent fierce activities (Lion-Faced Dakini, aspects of Tara), and protection (Green Tara and Palden Lhamo) — the ferocious protective love of a mother [For a story on Palden Lhamo, the female protector, view here>>]. Most Tibetan Buddhist temples and meditation centres try to arrange a monthly Tsog on this day each month, with celebrants bringing food as offerings. It is always a happy day, that invites blessings not only for the attendees, but for all sentient beings.
