What is it about the girl in the picture that you admire? Her charming wit? Her personality? Her intelligence and logic? Her emotional capacity? Her loving kindness?

Let me guess... Her ass! Got it!

If you believe that women dig your neanderthal, overstestosteroned garbage, if you believe that women do not want to be respected as holistic entities but just for the firmness of their posterior, or the size of their breasts, well my friend then take up your club and happy hunting.
I mean, unless you have totally transcended subject-object duality -----> anything you perceive as an object = objectifying gaze... so women then are equally guilty of objectifying men the moment they set their eyes on them. . Are we all supposed to keep our eyes closed?
What's this? Buddhist logic to justify your uncontrolled sensual desire? :zzz: C'mon Adamantine you can do better then that!

Actually, I only posted a pic for fun, in good humor as an offering to the OP who seemed to be longing for some dakinis to hang with, here or in purelands to come.

From the image, she has a nice smile, a beautiful face, and a fit figure. I could admire her form if I was a man or a woman, and either way there'd be nothing wrong, or un-Buddhist, about it. But more importantly, she had the good humor to pose as if her hands are beaming rainbow-light. It's a nice image illustrative of how one may imagine pureland dakinis, from our world''s imprints...

In the photo, if you'd looked (clearly you didn't, since you close your eyes before any attractive ladies manifest apparently-- lest you objectify them with your gaze) you can't see the girls bottom (I won't lower myself to your objectifying crass and offensive male language).

There's not one woman I know who doesn't want their beauty to be admired. As for the other gibberish about firmness, size, or whatever, I never spoke a word about any of that so stop projecting. I am guessing you must be a very frustrated man!

Yeah Gregg, I'm the transform desire into wisdom kinda of person. Unless you've taken celibacy wows there's nothing un-buddhist about having sex. Anyway this thread was meant to be in good humour. The core question was geniune though.

You make all that effort to get to Dewachen and the only thing that concerns you is the possibility that, maybe, when you get there you won't be able to get laid???

Funnily enough you laid the trap via your narrow definition of what the positive characteristics and attributes of a woman are. The feminine wisdom element of the dakini is to be found in ALL female forms.
Then the Lord paid homage with the five mandalas to the Lady (Vajrayogini) and said:
How, my dear, must your form be known by the yogi?
Then the Lady said:
Wherever in the Three Worlds a womanly form is seen, that is said to be my form, whether she belong to a low family or not low...
Mother, sister, wife, maternal aunt, niece, paternal aunt, mother in law, and all other caste relations...
Each in her own form is resolute in benefitting all living beings. Whomever among them are encountered, they are honoured by the yogis, kissing, embracing and joining the Vajra and Lotus.
When those women are honoured they give Success instantly to those who desire the welfare of all beings. Therefore one should honour women.
Women are heaven; women are Dharma; and women are the highest penance. Women are Buddha; women are the Sangha; and women are the Perfection of Wisdom...
By this man I am worshipped and satisfied, and to him I will give Success. I am none other than the bodies of all women.

Nevertheless, the definition of the ideal woman partner, laid out in countless tantras, is the padmini i.e. prominent, large breasts, narrow waist, etc., i.e., completely sexist.

So a waif like Kate Moss is totally off-base from the Tantric ideal then, huh?

Equanimity is the ground. Love is the moisture. Compassion is the seed. Bodhicitta is the result.

-Paraphrase of Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tsephel citing the Guhyasamaja Tantra

"All memories and thoughts are the union of emptiness and knowing, the Mind.
Without attachment, self-liberating, like a snake in a knot.
Through the qualities of meditating in that way,
Mental obscurations are purified and the dharmakaya is attained."

Seems like the Indian ideal hasn't changed much over the centuries, judging from contemporary Bollywood stars:
