The Golden Dakini

The song of the Golden Dakini from the Tibetan Buddhist traditionThe Tibetan Buddhist tradition is incredibly rich and inspiring.  It includes a pantheon of buddhas and dakinis who embody all the different personalities or essences of humanity.

Each ‘character’ in the pantheon has their own poem or song of meditation. 

One of the most beautiful is the song of the Golden Dakini. It is a beautiful praise to the divine feminine essence as healer, caretaker, mother and spiritual guide. It inspires me as a coach, and I hope it inspires you as well:

I am the Dakini of calming, healing, and making whole
I am invoked when the meditator is tired, disillusioned, or sad
I come to aid those who have tried sincerely but have not the strength
To fight their way to liberation
I strengthen the weak, and bring idealism and compassion
I have them help themselves on their own path
by helping others.

What does spirituality mean?
It is more than renunciation, more than ambition, more than fighting temptation
It is helping the world as you pass through it
It is sanctifying all aspects of life and blessing them
It is seeing the divine in all things.

As a Dakini, I am a spiritual guide and inspirational muse
I nurture people along the path
I encourage them towards liberation
As the spirit seeks ever-greater beauty and freedom

I am the loving mother, the wise grandmother, and the charming beloved
I take many forms shining with the light of peace
When I appear in meditation, my light falls like a golden waterfall
Shining all around turning everything beautiful
I give patience and understanding, charity, and a desire to help
Those who know me look at the world in a different way.

I cannot solve all problems
I am not a god
But I am a helper, and in helping I find joy
I soothe the pains of loneliness, rejection, and false pride
I bring people to see truth

Visualize me sitting on a golden lotus,
against a golden setting sun
The lotus floats on waters that are deep blue and green
The sky is gold and pale blue
I wear golden jewelry and pearls,
and gold and white silk
My vajra crown is also made of gold
My face is smiling, and my long dark hair is graceful and curling
I hold a mirror and a mala of yellow topaz.

My music makes warm winds
and flows through nature
Like a breath of sweet air through a field of sunflowers
Meditation holds the danger of becoming rejecting and hard of heart
The danger of pride, hatred, anger, and superiority
I wash these away with my golden light
I give a path of peace and blessing
So that the seeker may walk a clear path
And the pebbles turn golden at his feet.
