Padmasambhava offers profound instructions to Lady Tsogyal for all levels of practitioners, including death and dying, non-conceptual meditation, and recognizing the nature of mind.
The Dakini Teachings are an inspiring collection of wisdom from the legendary Guru Rinpoche, Padmasambhava. Nearly 1,200 years ago he gave his beloved disciple Lady Yeshe Tsogyal secret instructions on how to practice Dharma while in Tibet – and they were carefully recorded for us all! Today these teachings offer invaluable guidance to anyone seeking spiritual growth.
Dakini Teachings from Yeshe Tsogyal is an inspiring work that reveals the many layers of the heroic life of Yeshé Tsogyal, Tibet’s best-known female master and dakini.
Written by Padmasambhava, this terma – or “hidden treasure” – presents an outer narrative of her birth, family, and struggles in a traditionally male-dominated society; an inner account of her meetings with the great master Padmasambhava; and a secret chronicle of her retreat at Chimpu and her visionary journey to Oddiyana.
Dakini Teachings provides direct instructions relating to the three levels of Buddhist practice: Hinayana, Mahayana, and Vajrayana.
These accomplished translations are enriched by the refreshing insights of six contemporary scholars and teachers of Tibetan Buddhism, making Dakini Teachings from Yeshe Tsogyal an invaluable guide to the life of Yeshé Tsogyal for practitioners, scholars, and anyone intent on the possibility of awakening.
