Judith Simmer-Brown: The Dakini in Tibetan Buddhism

Learn about the feminine principle of the dakini in Tibetan Buddhism. Judith Simmer-Brown is a practicing Buddhist of more than 40 years and an acharya (senior dharma teacher) in the lineage of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. In this talk she explores the answers to these questions about the dakini: Why is she red? Why is she attractive? What is the significance of her gender?
