in silence there is song

Shifting Ground, by Mike Gillam, Central Australia

It seems whatever words i find do not make it to this page. However, if you want to know where my time and heart have been, please read my other blog, fromtarasbabies. I cannot comprehend the endless suffering of this world.

And if you have ever wondered what the voice of enlightenment may sound like in this country, please listen to Cut The Spell by Jetsunma. This is the cadence of compassion, pure ripe and clear. Just what is needed right now.

Bobbin Cat:
A Dakini is a female wisdom being. Her display of pure wisdom and compassion manifests in the form of activity, to enable others to accomplish that state, and to end suffering. Whatever it looks like, the activity is always and only to bring benefit. My teacher, Jetsunma, is an accomplished Dakini.
This is a short hand answer, as there are layers of meaning that I cannot explain, because I am still learning myself. Thinley Norbu Rinpoche wrote an exquisite book called Magic Dance, which weaves its way around and through the Dakini display. When I read his poetic language, my heart knows the Truth, yet I sometimes have to read one sentence over and over again, becaue each word contains so much.
