This page is for members only. Vajrayogini is the female buddha embodying radical presence.
The Vajrayogini Meditations are taught in this cycle, including 1) Three Dakinis Chod 2) the torma offering song from the Dakini’s Heart Essence (the mkha’ ‘gro snying thig) known as Calling the 100,000 Dakinis 3) The Generation stage Vajrayogini practice. In order to practice the generation stage Vajrayogini meditation, Drupon requires that one must have completed the ngondro, or preliminary practices of Vajrayana first. One may however, receive the empowerment before completing ngondro, but to do the practice, one has to have completed ngondro. However the first two practices may be engaged regardless of having completed ngondro or not.
