Publisher's Summary

The Tibetan Buddhist tradition includes exotic tales about fearless female "sky dancers" or "wisdom dakinis" who dance in limitless space and act as messengers, guides, and protectors. These five dakinis manifest the feminine wisdom energy, bringing strength, power, and transformation to our lives. In The Mandala of the Enlightened Feminine, Tsultrim Allione (one of the first women to be ordained a Buddhist nun over 30 years ago) guides listeners through 12 rich sessions of meditations and visualizations to learn how to embody these archetypes of enlightenment and experience their transformative powers.

timely

this couldn't have come at a better time for me. I found the practice to be almost instantly beneficial. Its so positive to have an emphasis on spiritual practice that is not guided by a male perspective, but is still respectful of those qualities. I would urge all women to take some time to work through this worthwhile practice.

Powerful, Brilliant and Assessable.

I believe that this book is an absolute must-- a treasure box-- for any spiritually inclined woman, much less any practicing Buddhist of any gender--- or anyone wanting to know what it is to practice (Tibetan) Buddhism. or even anyone who wants to hear an absolutely engrossing story!
what empowerment this teaching is! what wisdom so generously passed to us as if it were a simple fairy tale-- that tale that is the one you may have sought since childhood...finally the fairy tale... that is true.
In full disclosure, I became friends with Lama Tsultrim in the 70's long before she was widely recognized .. in the West, anyway. (we've only been in touch a few times over the years, but I'll see her soon in Colorado at her Dharma center... I hope!) I realize now that the Tibetans were "on to her," long before we were. But I can tell you what the epiphany of her greatness still is in my memory's eye: Tsultrim was the ONLY woman, that the great 20th century Beat poet, Allen Ginsberg, ever bowed to... every time they passed, he bowed... again and again. Tsultrim was simply polite & frienly in return and maybe a little amused... I don't know that because never spoke with her about it... but I did know immediately, after having worked for Allen for almost a decade, that when he bowed to this woman, this woman was someone very very special. He was right about that.
Get this book, it is in her voice, a treat upon a treat.. what a gift and how essential esp. to women everywhere.
Powerful, Brilliant and Assessable.
