Description About the author Contents
 
This is the biography of Shenza Nechung, Buddha Tonpa Shenrap Miwo's youngest daughter.

Buddha Tonpa Shenrap Miwo had two daughters: Shenza Nechen and Shenza Nechung. Shenza Nechen was the elder and became a nun. Shenza Nechung was his younger daughter. This book contains her life story.

When Shenza Nechung was young, she was seduced by the demon Khyappa Lakring and eloped with him. She then gave birth to twin babies of the demon, Takbu Tung and Zikbu Tung. Later she generated strong remorse for her misdeeds. Her father, Buddha Tonpa Shenrap Miwo, had skillful methods and miraculous power, and she was released from the kingdom of the demon. She then generated great, genuine renunciation of samsara and became a nun named Trima Sal.

This biography of Shenza Nechung includes a foreword by Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, commentary by Dr. Sangmo Yangri, and reflections by Tsering Wangmo Khemsar and Marcy Vaughn.

In the Bon tradition, there are numerous female lay and nun practitioners who attained high spiritual states. Their stories are included in Bon texts and also are a part of local folklore. These stories, however, have not been extricated from the texts or recorded from the folklore. This book is an attempt to fill a void that has been left for centuries.
