Yogini II

read all comments

1 Enakshi Ganguly = "Between the seventh and twelfth centuries, the term “yogini” referred to both fierce flying goddesses and the mortal women who ritually became those deities. This voluptuous yogini is a four-armed goddess. Sitting on an owl and brandishing a sword, she inserts two fingers into the corners of her open mouth, bares her individually carved teeth, and emits a piercing whistle. She may have been one of the yoginis whose name roughly translates as “she who makes a loud noise.”Source:"
