Dakinis - The Feminine Side of Wisdom
Dakinis - Die weibliche Seite der Weisheit
The word «dakini» represents an entire world.The dakini principle is a feminine credo. The language of the dakini is heard in silence and read in the darkness or in space.Opening this door is agreeing to enter the dimension of the intangible, the irrational...
The dakini principle only belongs to womankind, in the same way as the masculine principle only belongs to men.The more a human being becomes open and receptive, the closer she becomes to what is known as the «dakini, the being of wisdom».
Kandro Tsöring Chodron, an eminent dakini, who was the spiritual companion of one of the greatest Buddhist masters of all time, Jetsun Pema, who has devoted her life to the Tibetan Children's Village in order to educate those that the Dalai Lama calls «the seeds of our future Tibet», Ama Adhe, who was locked away in Chinese prisons for twenty-seven years, and Dominique Marchal, one of the first female commercial pilots, who discovered Buddhism later in life and dedicated herself to humanitarian work: the programme contains portraits of women as different as they are moving.With the help of her spiritual guide, Sogyal Rinpoche, the author of the work «The Tibetan Book of Life and Death», Véronique Jannot takes us to meet these women with such unusual destinies.
«Meeting them, listening to them, is an unforgettable experience.As one leaves them one feels enriched, with the sense of having received one of life's gifts...»
