Traditional Buddhist Gold Gilded Art, Vajrayogini Dakini Statue
Vajrayogini, also a Dakini, is shown magnificently in this traditional Buddhist statue art. This statue was handcrafted in Kathmandu by a Nepali artist in copper and gilded in 24K Gold. Vajrayogini's glowing red body is ablaze with the heat of yogic fire and circled with the flames of wisdom. Her dancing, leaping, and soaring poses proclaim that she is fully alive and joyously free. Her flowing hair and swaying bone ornaments ripple on the currents of her swirling energy field.

Vajrayogini, also known as Vajravarahi, is the female embodiment of the mental ability that leads to Buddhahood in Vajrayana (Tantric Buddhism). Vajrayana prioritizes experience above speculation, although it does so creatively, using words from speculative intellectual Buddhism. This practice uses pictures from one's everyday life to better understand man's being, which is both action (upaya) and knowledge (prajna), each of which reinforces the other.
