This image is of the dakini Vajrayogini in her form as Naro Khajoma. A dakini is the most important female principle, representing the ever-changing flow of female energy. In Tantric Buddhism, dakinis are the guardians of teachings and are considered the supreme embodiment of wisdom. The dakini can help change human weaknesses into wisdom and understanding, or the concept of self into enlightened energy.

There are two kinds of dakinis-supramundane, or "beyond-wordly," ones and mundane, or "worldly," ones usually referred to as yoginis in real life. Dakinis or yoginis are often mystical partners of yogis, to whom they give secret wisdom and magical powers. The practitioner strives to reach Buddhahood through the help of his lama, or teacher; his yidam, or meditational deity; and his dakini.

Here Vajrayogini is shown with three eyes and in her typical dancing posture; she is half standing on her knee on a plain platform and her left leg is stretched out touching her left arm. Her right hand holds a vajra chopper, while her left hand holds a skull cup. The function of the chopper is to make 'mincemeat' of the hearts, intestines, lungs, and life-veins of enemies hostile to the Dharma. A similar crescent-shaped cleaver is used in oriental cuisine to chop meat and dice vegetables.

The skull-cup (Skt. Kapala; Tib. Thod phur) – fashioned from the oval upper section of the human cranium - serves as a libation vessel for a vast number of Vajrayana deities, particularly wrathful ones. In her form as Naro Khajoma, Vajrayogini is depicted pouring blood and human brains from an upraised skull-cup into her mouth, signifying that she consumes great bliss.

The skull-cup of blood (Skt. Rakta purna; Tib. Thod khrag) is usually depicted as a 'swirling-offering', with the blood forming waves and crests like turbulent water or boiling liquid, as shown in this image. This symbolizes the 'blazing and dripping' of the red bodhichitta as 'inner heat', since a liquid offering of blood or nectar is said to boil in the presence of a wrathful deity, yidam or goddess.

This description by Dr. Shailendra Kumar Verma, Ph.D. His doctorate thesis being on the "Emergence and Evolution of the Buddha Image (from its inception to 8th century A.D).

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.

An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.

I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
