Sangyum rigdzin wangmo

A little more from Sangye Khandro about her, from an interview with Michaela Haas in "Dakini Power":
A WISDOM DAKINI IN NEW YORK

MH: Do you have any women teachers?
SK : I have the greatest devotion for Dudjom Rinpoche’s consort, Sangyum Kusho Rigdzin Wangmo, who is one of my root teachers. She was Dudjom Rinpoche’s source of everything, giving Rinpoche the energy he needed to benefit sentient beings. As a wisdom dakini, she extended his life. As an aristocrat, she is very proper and formal, completely unique. She always looks immaculate, very beautiful and feminine, wearing finest jewels and silks. She has been in retreat for many years, upstairs in a brownstone in the middle of New York City, in this one room with one window. She never goes out. Any ordinary person such as me would go crazy. Enlightened beings don’t have a self like we do, so they can be a lot more at ease.
MH: Is she your role model?
SK : If there is any woman on the planet who I admire most and want to be like, it’s her.
There is not only nothingness because there is always, and always can manifest. - Thinley Norbu Rinpoche

That’s a cool story- glad to hear she’s up there, taking care of the world.

Kirt's Tibetan Translation Notes

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche
