Kalu Rinpoche | The meaning of Khandroma

And then also, the misconception of the Khandroma [མཁའ་འགྲོ་མ་ Dakini]. Okay? So I have to explain little bit.

Many people they have this misconception of the word of མཁའ་འགྲོ་མ་khandro ma“. They think that Khandroma has something to do with being a consort of a, of master or Rinpoche or things like that.

But if you look at the history of the Niguma, it has nothing to do with the consort or anybody, you know? Being and the meaning of Khandroma, simply means Khandroma, Khandro, མཁའ་འགྲོ་khandro“, means like “the one who can walk through the space” and that is the limitation of the realisation that she has, that she upholds, which is beyond any sort of a limitation, right? So that is the meaning of Khandroma.

So Khandroma does not require to be a consort of somebody or something, or anything. Okay?

Khandroma simply means, just like when we call a yogi, a Bodhisattva, right? So same thing. Khandroma means a female highly realised being, enlightened being, like Green Tara, or the White Tara, equal to that level, we call them Khandroma, okay?
