“The dakini is the remover of all obstacles. The dakini is a female buddha, such as Samantabhadri, the five female buddhas, the eight female bodhisattvas, and so forth. The dakini is the root that dispels all obstacles. The dakinis and the dharmapalas comprise the root of activities and this activity is extremely swift.”

~ Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche
