Thanks dzogchungpa. I find Ani Zamba's story very inspiring and I hope others will too.
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.

Here, as well, is a video interview with Ani Zamba http://theyoginiproject.org/features/ani-zamba

She is indeed an amazing woman.
