Dakini Power

Post by plwk » Tue May 28, 2013 12:50 pm


Has anyone got hold of or read the latest book as the title suggests, just out last month? I am thinking of getting a copy.
From here, here & here, it does look very impressive on how these featured female teachers in the West have made their mark and shaping the transmission of the Buddha Dharma.
