About the Art

Akash Yogini is also called “Bijesvari” (wisdom goddess), and “Vidhyadhari Vajrayogini” (knowledge holder). She is seen in a flying position leaping towards the akash (sky). One of her legs is pointed towards the sky and her right leg is bent up at the knee without touching the ground. The Goddess’s left-hand goes under her left leg and carries a kapala (skull cup) and khatwanga (long studded club) which is sealed with a golden cross vajra, a nectar vase, impaled blue head of Bhairav,
a human head, a dry white skull and a crowning half Vajra.
