Vajrayogini, literally meaning, ‘the diamond female yogi’ (Tib: Dorje Phagmo), is a tantric Buddhist meditational deity.  She is the supreme Dakini, or ‘Female Sky-dancer’, the quintessence of the Heruka Chakrasamvara Tantras, and the embodiment of the fully enlightened, fiercely energetic female aspect of all Buddhas. In this iconographical form she is semi-wrathful, with three eyes, hair flowing upwards, and a boar’s head at the crown. With youthful vitality she dances upon the corpse of delusion, naked and glorious in the realm of wisdom with absolute mastery over anger and lust. Shameless and fearless in her realization she slashes through reality with her wisdom cleaver, containing it in the skull cup of inseparable bliss and voidness.
