Lightbulb Daka Dakini

When the completion stage practices have been mastered and we have gained control over our subtle energy winds and so forth, there will come a time when the dakas and dakinis will come... physically embracing such a consort is necessary to bring all the pervading energy winds into the central channel, a prerequisite for opening the heart center and experiencing the profoundest level of clear light.."what are dakas and dakinis? Simply speaking they are Males & Females who possess advanced experiences of tantric transformation and control and are therefore able to increase the blissful wisdom of a highly qualified practioner"...

In medieval Hindu legend, a daka (feminine dakini) is an Evil or Malevolent spirit.. The term shakini is sometimes used interchangeably..The chief deity who has control over such malevolent spirits is Hanuman.. The Vichitra Veer Hanuman Stroram, sung in praise of Vichitra Veer Hanuman, a ferocious form of Hanuman, details the negative elements over whom Hanuman has control, including dakini. There are many other Hanuman mantras to win over a dakini..Hanuman participated in Rama's war against the demon king Ravana.. According to Jain texts, Hanuman is a human of vanara clan whose emblem is the monkey.. Several texts also present him as an incarnation of Lord Shiva.. He is the son of Vayu, who according to several stories, played a role in his birth...

According to one legend Dakini and Shakini were the wives of Tripurasura.. After Tripurasura was slain by Shiva, they received the boon from Shiva that they Could live in the forest without any threat and people would have to chant their names before they could visit the shrine of Bhimashankara.. Hence the forest around there became known as Dakini Forest... and how I love you talking Monkeys for this... know more about War and treachery of the spirit than any Angel...
