This calligraphy is written in the hidden script and hidden language of the khandros (mKha’ gro – dakinis or sky-dancing ladies). The script upon which the calligraphy is based is a gTér – a visionary revelation.Ngak’chang Rinpoche comments:
The khandro principle is what provides the inspiration for realisation – the innate magical quality of the phenomenal world in all its limitless variety. For women this can be perceived in male qualities – as method display. This is called: seeing the world as the dance of the pawo. For men this can be perceived in female qualities – as wisdom display. This is called: seeing the world as the dance of the khandro. Script of this variety is known as ton-dröl, which means ‘liberation through seeing’. Through seeing this script our consciousness is ‘seeded’ with the cause of our eventual liberation.
Khandro Déchen continues:
Ton-drö should be shown to everyone, everywhere; with the wish that the
illusions of frustration, fear and fecklessness—which often characterise
our experience—may evaporate into wisdom-space.
