Motova, It is not a good idea to use buddhadharma or Vajrayana practices for personal & worldly purposes.
Glorious one, creator of all goodness, Mañjuśrī, his glorious eminence!

godspeed bro. It's not the worst aspiration I've ever heard.

Picking up a bit of Russian, Italian or Spanish won't hurt your chances. As suggested already, focus on yourself and when you're ready she'll find you, hit you over the head and drag you back to her cave. So to speak. No chance to resist, be careful what you wish for. She’s smarter than you, free, and tougher too. Daka or not.

"The Sutras, Tantras, and Philosophical Scriptures are great in number. However life is short, and intelligence is limited, so it's hard to cover them completely. You may know a lot, but if you don't put it into practice, it's like dying of thirst on the shore of a great lake. Likewise, a common corpse is found in the bed of a great scholar." ~ Karma Chagme

Now imagine divorcing a dakini. (Disembowling corpse). Honey, I think we need to talk... it’s just not working out...

Forgetting the dakini thing for a moment. I know a lot of the post is tongue in cheek, but are all those places really full of advanced practitioners? Sounds like that's what you're saying. That's very impressive if so.

I've heard there are a lot of good yogis around Merigar West as Rinpoche was there for so long, and I'm sure a few followed him to Dzamling Gar.

It often seems like excellent western practitioners tend to just be the inner-circle of a lama's students, which are often just a small number physically close to the lama, and a few others scattered around. So if there are a number of advanced practitioners concentrated in all those places I'm highly impressed!

There has been a lot of tongue-in-cheek, but essence of OP's aspiration is the common lot of many or most men and women who long for an intimate relationship. For at least some practitioners of vajrayana at a certain point, the difficulties of sharing their life with someone who doesn't hold the view becomes obvious.

While the thread centered around OP's aspiration to marry a Dakini, my comments are in recognition of this common need, and how it manifests for vajrayana students.

I heard a practitioner of some renown themselves, who lived with a great master for many years, remark that the only Dakini they've met was their teacher, (a man). This correctly demonstrates the understanding that qualities of realization labelled as "feminine" or "masculine" arise in both sexes. Let's hope the world is finally approaching a tipping point of realizing this on some level & addressing the imbalances in the equation of male/female, yin/yang that have brought us to the brink of chaos. We'll see whether or not it's too little too late.

Qualities of realization, masculine or feminine arise in accordance with the karma, capacity and conditions of those on the path. On one end of the continuum, perhaps there is a "Dakini" as discussed, who for whatever reason lives in the human realm. On the same continuum we can include a stalwart Yogini on the path possessing some of these qualities. Or even someone we don't see as a practitioner possessing some great qualities we recognize in women everywhere (both revered & reviled in our predominantly patriarchal societies). It's a continuum and to find our counterpart(s) on it is a common desire.

Do these qualities exist in ChNNR's communities? Absolutely, just as they exist everywhere the teachings are introduced by a Vidyadhara and practiced properly. I listed these DC places b/c someone asked where you'd look if you're serious about a relationship, and the Dzogchen Community is one of the larger organizations I'm aware of.

I had my entire world leveled in about 18 months through the cognitive dissonance that came with realizing I was raised in a cult. This left me with a strong desire to never participate in any organized religion or spiritual community again, no matter how well meaning. I was done.

The thing that made me change my mind about this and has left me with a desire to collaborate with others of a like heart and mind, are precisely those qualities of realization that I've seen in the sincere practitioners from different schools I've met in the ensuing years. Some of the most amazing people I've met and their qualities are obvious in the ways they live their lives and benefit beings.

Along with my teachers and own experience, this display of qualities is the greatest source of inspiration and evidence of this path. Like most "spiritual" paths, it may not pass the sniff test laid out by the Karl Popper's of the world, but the qualities are real enough and have a source.

Knowing that beings possessing knowledge and these qualities are out there doing their thing gives me hope in the face of the chaos I see in the world. I realize that this is not limited to the community I happen to be part of, nor just to vajrayana practitioners or even necessarily just Buddhists. The qualities of realization arise as the basis of all sentient beings, and are only limited by affliction & their expression in time.

I was playing to that tongue-in-cheek as you pointed out, yet I recognize there is a sincere and worthy desire by OP at the basis of this thread. So to him and for everyone who is looking to share their lives with someone special possessing some of the qualities of realization, someone who can hold up the mirror and help us progress on our paths, I too say "May it be so" and wish them my best.

Uuuuummmm... *Raises hand awkwardly*

What would you all suggest I do when you start dating a Himalayan dakini? We skipped a few steps and got quite intimate, but due to distance we can only go so far yet. I've never had this kind of clear sign that some major karma has been purified than finally meeting the woman of my dreams who will lovingly care for my daughter as her own.

However, she does identify as secular, not very religious by her own admission. That said, the reason she hit me back on Messenger is that I sent her a live of Drupön Thinley Nyingpo Rinpoche and a monk named Ngedön making a sand mandala...

So I think there's really potential for an ally helping me not stray on the path, or ideally a karma dakini for the path of bliss as Garchen Rinpoche specifically taught us.

Either way, I can't believe the swift power of Dorje Sempa, Jetsün Drölma, Namgyalma, Amitabha, and specifically the Dharma items I inherited recently from the 2nd friend I've know to dissociate from the Tibetan form of Buddhadharma in favor of Chan/Zen (a long-time interest of his), and of course the prayer wheel I spin for animals and sirens and homeless people who come across my path quite literally.

In fact, there is actually a huge prayer wheel installed here in one of Nova Southeastern University's libraries that was consecrated and blessed by HH the Dalai Lama back in like 2003. I'm not gonna lie, I spun that thing for a good while and bonked my tiny pendant prayer wheel (the barrel of which is actually from Lhasa) with the huge monastery-sized one (made in India, in exile) with HH's blessings.

It was a very special moment for me AND it seems to have paid dividends considering how swiftly things aligned after a specific dakini empowerment and this very recent meeting of the prayer wheels and the receiving of the statues and relics...

Pics upon request provided I get her permission. I'll tell you yea or nay soon.

I married a Dakini. She has taught me so much.

Find someone who loves you for who you are. There is so much they can teach you. Real Dharma stuff.

How to find someone who loves you for who you are? Partly, it's luck or karmic connection or whatever, mostly it's loving them for who they are.

Since last posted, I've come to learn that this dakini says she loves me for my heart more than anything else. "Heart of gold," she calls it. I feel so blessed that the Buddha Dakini saw fit to come into my life in such a way...
