Lama Palden discusses compassion and the Tonglen practice of sending and receiving. Please note that the actual practice portion of the talk has been removed since it is important for students to receive direct transmission of the teachings from the teacher.
Dakinis are activity aspects of awakened mind. Outwardly the dakini can support, nurture and protect us. She also can show up to cut through conceptuality. Ultimately dakini is the wisdom aspect of our own minds; the openness aspect that is the space for and is inseparable with everything that is. When this aspect is realized all phenomena, all experience become workable, eventually blissful. True nature is wisdom, openness, compassion and love.
