Description
 
THE FIRST TIBETAN ever to attain complete enlightenment was in all probability the woman Yeshe Tsogyal, closest disciple of Padmasambhava, the master who introduced the Buddhist teachings to Tibet in the eighth century. This book is not only a biography but an inspiring example of how Buddha's teaching may be practiced.
Lady of the Lotus-Born is also a colorful and intriguing picture of Tibet at the beginning of the Buddhist era-a time of upheaval, when royal patronage was striving to foster the new teachings in the face of powerful opposition. Although a text of great antiquity, it nevertheless expresses a tradition that is still alive today and is an archetypal description of the teacher-disciple relationship. Yeshe Tsogyal follows the complete Buddhist path, including the Dzogchen teachings, and herself becomes a Guru of great power and wisdom_. Passages of profound teachings are offset by episodes of exploit and adventure, spiritual endeavor, court intrigue, and personal encounter. It is a dramatic story, full of beauty and song, and offers an intimate glimpse of Tsogyal's feelings, aspirations, hardships, and triumphs.
