Vajrayogini (Tib: rdo rje rnal ’byor ma) is the principal female deity of the Chakrasamvara Cycle of Tantras. There are many forms of Vajrayogini; most come with a different name. Some names are descriptive, others refer to the lineage or principal Indian mahasiddha associated with a particular Yogini practice, like Maitri or Indra Khachod. The most common forms found are Naropa's dakini (Naro Khachod; Tib: na ro mkha’ spyod), Vajravarahi (with the pig face at the side; lit. "Vajra Sow"; Tib: rdo rje phag mo) who is identical in looks to Indra Khachod, and Maitri Khachod (in mid-air with both legs up). Vajrayogini in Naropa's form is a representation of complete buddhahood in female form.
