A grimoire is a textbook of magic, which is the literary fare of Harry Potter. These books typically have instructions on how to create magical objects, like talismans and amulets, as well as to how to perform magical spells, charms and divination.
A grimoire also lists supernatural entities, such as Angels, Spirits, and Daemons, which are sometimes liberally illustrated; they are somewhat likened to that of art books; although they are more like proto-comics in style.
The illustrated entities, which populate a grimoire, are of similarity to a Yidam. A Yidam is essentially a two-dimensional image, which is seen to be a repository for a type of deity associated with Tantric or Vajrayana Buddhism.
The Yidam usually depicts a deity, who is shown copulating with a female counterpart, called a Dakini; the imagery of which tends to be highly erotic. The term, erotic, is the operative word here, not pornographic! Those whom castigate this practice as being merely pornographic entirely miss the point of Dream Yoga, more so those who indulge in externalising it of base hedonism.
The deity is considered to be a particular manifestation of Buddhahood, as well as the enlightened mind of the Yogi; whereas the Dakini represents the creative power of the deity.
In medieval Europe a Dakini would otherwise be termed as being a Succubus; although, a Dakini is also like a Genie as well as being an inspiring Muse.
During personal meditation (Sadhana) practice, the Yogi identifies himself with the focussed upon deity, which represents an attribute, power and state of mind the Yogi seeks to assume, of an inner-self-image, for the purpose of self transformation.
The Yogi visualises himself copulating with the Dakini, as her deity, which is depicted in the Yidam; whereby he introverts his sexual impulse. This will enable the Yogi to implant his now sexually charged desire into his subconscious mind.
The introversion of the sexual impulse will then empower the emotive spin of his electron dreams; the goal being to attain a lucid dream, within which the Yogi consciously experiences copulating with the Dakini, who is a bio-photon aspect of the Shakti (Electron) power of the dream.
The Dakini will then enable the Yogi to assume the guise of the (strange attractor) deity, since the (informational associative fractal) dream, which is the (Shakti) power of the Dakini, will reflect him back as the deity.
The Dakini is sometimes seen as a self created thought-form, which is termed as being a Tulpa. A Tulpa can be constructed from varying symbolic stimuli like that of knitting together a Frankenstein’s creation of a Golem, this is done consciously of artistry; there is nothing strange or unnatural about this creative process, since your dreams are already populated with Tulpas.
The practice involves working towards the chosen Tulpa construct manifesting into three-dimensional form as a fully interactive reality.
As mentioned, this is very much the case within a lucid dream, which is the initial phase of a Tulpa manifestation. It is also believed that a Tulpa can manifest into physical reality; although this only occurs on very rare occasions, for a brief time, as a kind of Ghost, which tends to be only seen by the operator. However, such a conjuration into physical reality usually manifests as associative synchronicities, which is sometimes followed by corresponding poltergeist phenomena.
When a lucid dream is achieved, the dream will be the three-dimensional experiential manifestation of the two-dimensional image of the Yidam.
In other words, the three-dimensional experiential inner reality of the dream will be pre-programmed by the focused upon two-dimensional Yidam.
The Yidam would equate with an illustration of a spirit in a grimoire. The term, Yidam is sometimes translated as meaning, meditational deity, or, tutelary deity.
Examples of Yidams include the meditation deities of, Chakrasamvara, Kalachakra, Hevajra, Yamantaka, and Vajrayogini, all of whom have a distinctive iconography, with associated mandalas and mantra rites of conjuring them as Tulpas.
You can then see a grimoire being illustrated with Yidams of the spirits, which have accompanying mandala sigils and seals, as well as having mantra names, via which a practitioner can conjure the spirits as Tulpas within his/her lucid dreams.
Not all Yidams depict a deity copulating with a Dakini; many of which just illustrate Dakinis, upon whom the Yogi meditates, while imagining himself sexually engaging with them of Dream Yoga.
This is of course dependent on whether the Yogi is of a heterosexual persuasion or even of a bisexual orientation.
A Dakini can be depicted of modern expression as a female character out of a comic, Manga or Anime who symbolically represents a psychic power or an ability the practitioner seeks to attain.
A Dakini can even be seen as an alien girl, piloting a time travelling UFO of a TARDIS, who represents (Sleipnir) information pertaining to the Star Trek future, to thereby remote view via a lucid dream by the practitioner, who has assumed the (deity/Odin) guise of a ‘Dr Who’ shaman.
Whatever form the Dakini is depicted as, of a two-dimensional Yidam painting, it will determine the type of scenario the practitioner will access of a three-dimensional interactive reality within a dream.
The male version of a Dakini is called a Daka, which is the primary focus of the patriarchal grimoires; hence, I have totally reversed their all male (Daka) paradigm, towards that of the female (Dakinis) of ‘Anima’ preference.
Although, if your sexual orientation is otherwise predisposed, you can stick with conjuring up Daka Angels and Demons of traditional commonality, betwixt and between your ‘Animus’ fixation upon a machismo God and a butch Devil seeking to enter unto your orifice.
This fact of symbolic logic can either put a broad smile on your knowing face when to become as the Shekhinah vessel for your God, or for you to rapine scream that you are being possessed, due to your sheepish ignorance. Well, what do you bloody expect, a male does enter into a woman, it’s ‘fucking nature!’
