She has dressed as a semi wrathful deity with a bright white complexion wearing deity jewels and a long green scarf flowing through her body and standing in a dancing stance with the left leg down.

    Note: Machig Labdron is an original painting from Enlightenment Studio, located at Boudha Stupa.

    Machig Labdron was not a lama's consort, unlike other Tibetan female Dakini. She was a spiritual mother who nurtured the spiritual life of her children. Her Chod technique was named one of the Eight Great Chariots of the practicing lineages. Machig's student and tantric consort were Padampa Sangye, a great Indian saint. He is also credited with founding the Chod system in its entirety.
