She has attained Buddhahood, the state of ultimate wisdom and supreme bliss. Her mind flows in a pure, neoconceptual stream, free from distortion and conceptual overlay. Thus, she is a wisdom Dakini, an insight bestowing female, great victorious mother, female who delights in highest knowledge,” and “enlightened being whose nature is primordial wisdom and ultimate reality. Because her mind is completely purified, every experience in her mental stream has the superior taste of supernal joy. She enjoys a continuous flow of spontaneously arising supreme bliss. Her bliss is spontaneous because it is not dependent on external objects; it leads because it can never be diminished or destroyed.
