Rigpa is a Tibetan word, which in general means 'intelligence' or 'awareness'. Rigpa has a deeper connotation, 'the secret nature of the mind'. The whole of the teaching is directed towards realizing this, our ultimate nature, the state of omniscience or enlightenment – a truth so universal, so primordial that it goes beyond all limits, and beyond even HIGHERSELF. —
When we talk or go for a walk, our mind is filled with a whole range of distractions. When we cannot concentrate or stay focused, it is difficult for wisdom to arise. It is only after subduing the mind, when it becomes clearer and sharper, that our thinking is more focused and more effective in problem solving.
Dakini, according to Buddhist mythology can be understood as a female deity or also as a goddess. According to the Tibetan language the term Dakini is Khandroma which means "she who crosses the sky" or also "she who moves in space" also referred to as "sky dancer" or "sky walker".
As we explained earlier, this term is given to goddesses or female deities and has different meanings. Their bodies are usually represented with sinuous and dancing postures. It is noteworthy that although daikinis are depicted naked and beautiful, they are not seen as sexual symbols, but rather as symbols of the naked nature of the mind, free from any obscuration.
The movements of their dances give to represent all the movements and thoughts of consciousness in the mental flow and dharmakaya as the flowering of the Buddha's mind. Dakinis are prevalent in Vajrayana Buddhism and particularly in Tibet and the Himalayas. They have sometimes been considered to have an aggressive or volatile temperament, sometimes acting as muses, ladies who were inspirational for spiritual practices.
Daikini also represent energetic female forms, which evoke the entire energy movement of space. According to this context, the sky or space indicate all the insubstantiality of phenomena, which is, the pure potential of possible manifestations. These goddesses are agents of trial and challenge, as there are situations in which a Dakini checks an aspirant's knowledge or control over some particular subject. There are many stories about the Mahasiddhas in Tibet.
When fundamental ignorance or consciousness is not vibrating, it is calm like the surface of the ocean, always quiet. This is the state of Rigpa. When consciousness starts to move, even if it turns back, it cannot perceive its own basic nature. This is why it is called ignorance. The mind is a complex thing — its continuum, annihilation, basic nature, and development are all governed by special rules. A lot of people have substantial knowledge of the world, but they do not know who they are, what their basic nature is, and where they come from. By way of practice DAKINI RIGPA, we can attain this knowledge since our mind is self-knowing.
Is going with the flow and living in the moment. We should not become overly attached to the past and future but live perfectly in the present. Our suffering is unrelated to spirits or the Creator; it is only the result of our ego clinging. If we let go of attachment to the self, and practice DAKINI RIGPA we will instantly feel relaxed and at ease, free of suffering.
