DESCRIPTION:-

 

Vajrayogini or Vajravarahi (Tibetan: Dorje Naljorma, English: the Vajra yogini; also Tibetan: Dorje Phagmo, Wylie: rdo-rje phag-mo, English: the Vajra Sow) is a dakini, a tantric Buddhist ishta-deva (Tib. yidam). Her sadhana (practice) originated in India between the 10th and 12th century, having evolved out of the Chakrasamvara sadhana to become a stand-alone practice in its own right.[1] She is often associated with triumph over ignorance as well as with abandonment (one of her hidden aspects is Varuni[citation needed], Hinduist goddess of alcohol and intoxication). Vajrayogini is key to the advanced sadhana of Chöd. Vajrayogini is visualized as the translucent, deep red form of a 16 years old female with the third eye of wisdom set vertically on her forehead. Iconographically, Vajrayogini, like most of the Dakini, is often signified with the investiture of Digambar. She is often pictured with a sow and is an important deity for tantric initiation, especially for new initiates — Vajrayogini’s practice is said to be well-suited to those with strong desirous attachment, and to those living in the current “degenerate age”. Her consort is Chakrasamvara, who is often depicted as a spear on Vajrayogini’s shoulder. Vajrayogini and her iconography are also closely associated with the Hindu goddess Chinnamasta. Vajrayogini is the yidam that a meditator identifies with when practicing Six yogas of Naropa

In tibet, the abbess of Samding monastery, on the shores of the Yamdrok Tso Lake near Gyantse, was traditionally a tulku of Dorje Phagmo.[2] The current incarnation resides in Lhasa.[3]
