Vajrayogini Description and Meaning
Vajrayogini in Naro Kacho form is embodied as a stunningly beautiful 16 year old female with full breasts and voluptuous body. Additionally, she is fully naked standing in a provocative posture. Her red hair is also unfettered and she expresses disdain for all conventional norms.
However, this beautiful body is covered with skulls and bone fragments expressing the impermanence of worldly beauty. Indeed, the contrast of macabre human accoutrements with youthful female beauty is an outstanding aspect of Naro Kacho Vajrayogini.
As a result, Vajrayogini practice is most effective for eliminating the negative energy of desire. She is a representation of complete Buddhahood in female form in permanent union with her consort Chakrasamvara.
The Naro Kacho form of Vajrayogini was first visualized by the Indian mahasiddha Naropa. Afterwards it was taught by Naropa and accepted into the Sakya school of Tibetan Buddhism. Eventually it would be accepted by the Gelug school and Naro Kacho Vajrayogini is still widely accepted by today’s practitioners.
