Daka and Dakini

Daka and Dakini

Postby waimengwan » Fri Oct 25, 2013 8:15 am

Can people be reborn as a Daka or Dakini? If yes what is the cause for that?

Or that is only something tantrikas can learn about ?

Thanks

Do you hold tantric vows from a valid unbroken lineage with samaya intact?
Because if not, it's really not fit to talk about with you.

Humor me if I don't acknowledge Tsem's samaya as intact.
If there is a radical inconsistency between your statements and the position you claim to hold,
you are a sock puppet.
Make as many accounts as you want; people can identify your deception with this test.

I was just curious if someone had kundalini, and was a Vipassana old student ... would be considered a daka. I am nearing the completion stage in Highest Tantric
practise....Yamantaka. :smile:

No, it's not a rebirth, it's a state of realisation. Dakas and Dakinis are male and female Tantric enlightened beings.

I don't know much about Daka but I will tell you about Dakini.
She is the wrathful form of Tara, and though her form seems scary but she is the symbolization of protection of her disciples.
Though there is not mention about how someone is born as Tara or Dakini..

Sounds like a mixing-up. "Dakini" is no name of a single diety. It is a general term. (Like "a Buddha" is general for all buddhas and "the Buddha" might name Buddha Shakiamuni.)

Not all ḍākas and ḍākinīs are realized. Like any class of beings, some are realized and some are not. So called lokaḍākinīs, worldly ḍākinīs, are not realized.

:oops: My bad!!!
But I haven't heard much about Daka.
Is it also a general term?

:thanks: For wishing.

Dakas are male Dakinis. :) But I don't know any story about them.
I just hear them to be mentioned in a crowd: "The Dakas and Dakinis ..."

Generally, it's good to practice seeing all females as Dakinis /female-Buddhas by nature, and all males as Dakas/male-Buddhas by nature .

I highly recommend reading Dakini's warm breath by Judith simmer brown for a detailed exploration of the various levels of the Dakini. Dakinis aren't something we can understand with one or two or three fixed definitions and reference points alone. A Dakini can embody different meanings in one moment and perceptual circumstance, and another all together in a different moment.

Between Dakas and Dakinis there's a difference
In how their bodies may seem in apparent reality,
But for Mahamudra, luminous clarity,
There's not an atom of difference in their essential nature.
Those with good fortune and intelligence, Who enter into the Vajrayana
And attain the mantric siddhis,
Are renowned as mantra-born dakinis.
By attending a realized teacher and
By the power of meeting mind's natural state
They directly realize the reality that abides,
These are called coemergent dakinls.
By dwelling in the fields of the twenty-four Sacred places of body, speech, and mind,
They accomplish the benefits of others.
These are called sacred-realm dakinis.
