Dakini day

Post by Toenail » Fri Sep 15, 2017 10:58 am

Yo fellow internet pirates, I always wondered where the notion of the 25th as dakini day stems from. I have never seen it called like that in tibetan. Is it from some Tantra that says it is connected with Dakinis?

By the way,
Happy 25th to all of you!

Not sure, but I like the idea of wishing people Happy daikini day.

Sooo, happy dakini day.

The 25th is a very Tibetan thing.
