Reviews

"A comprehensive, scholarly, and intriguing study of 'dakini, ' the feminine principle of Tibetan Buddhism. A landmark study."--Library Journal

"Simmer-Brown has written what is destined to be a classic among vajrayana practitioners, Buddhists of other schools, and readers interested in Buddhism."--Shambhala Sun "Dakini's Warm Breath is not only readable, but exhilaratingly lucid."--Tricycle: The Buddhist Review "A scholarly and fascinating exploration into the feminine principle in Tibetan Buddhism."--Bodhi Tree Book Review "A book-length discussion of dakinis, who are one of the most elusive aspects of Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism, is a welcome edition to the growing literature on symbols of the feminine in Buddhism. Simmer-Brown skillfully interweaves traditional stories with commentaries by contemporary Buddhist teachers to provide the most complete discussion of this topic to date."--Rita Gross, author of Buddhism after Patriarchy and Soaring and Settling: Buddhist Perspectives on Contemporary Social and Religious Issues
