Red Seng-gé Dongma close-up showing skull bowl

Red Seng-gé Dongma


In my left hand I hold the colossal skull bowl symbol, in which surfeited gluttony, vindictive vituperation, voracious obsession, convoluted vacillation, and maladaptive melancholy are transformed into the five voluptuous wisdoms. The white bone of the skull is the male quality of spacious-passion. The red frothing oceans of menstrual blood within the skull bowl is the female quality of passionate-space.

In my right hand I hold the nine-pronged lapis lazuli flaying knife which barbarically butchers all dualistic contrivances. The central prong is the spatial dimension, and the eight surrounding prongs are the daka and dakini of each liberated neurosis.
