Extraordinary Women Practitioners

The thread is intended as a homage to great women practitioners. Please add stories and photos you find inspiring.

This first story is about the extraordinary realisation of Mayum Kunsang Dechen, consort of Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche and mother of Chokyi Nyima and Tsikey Chokling Rinpoches, as told by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche:

Just as the trunk of an ordinary tree
Lying in the forests of the Malaya mountains
Absorbs the perfume of sandal from the moist leaves and branches
So you come to resemble who whomever you follow.
