Verses of Kyobpa Jigten Sumgön

In the scripts of Lord Jigten Sumgon we find the following teaching on the nature of the unsurpassed mother, the vajra dakini Achi:

The mother, the Dakini “Mighty Lady of the Space,”
walks in the skies and tames the malevolent ones.
She protects the yogis and yoginis who do not transgress their pledges.
She is kinder than a mother and lovelier than a sister.
She is pleasing like a lover.
She is Vajra Dakini!

Although phenomena are not really existent, she shows illusory play.
She, whose mind is inconceivable and beyond expression,
is the companion of all Victors of the three times,
the mother of the bodhisattvas,
the one who brings forth shravakas and pratyekabuddhas,
and the source of all bliss and happiness—the supreme mother!

Great imposing Achi!
Great gorgeous Achi!
She is the supreme Mighty Lady of Dakinis!
She walks through the space of appearances that are the mind itself
by the power of her freedom from coming and going.
She is the Vajra Dakini!

Thus, Viras, Dakinis, and my son,
never be separated from her even for a moment!
