Dakini As Art

Yeshe Tsogyal

Yeshe Tsogyal was the most important historical female figure in the tradition of the Tibetan Buddhist Nyingma school. She became the intimate companion of Padmasambhava, who was responsible for bringing Buddhism to Tibet, at the age of 16. She is often depicted in his thangkas, at his side along with Mandarava, his Indian consort. Padmasambhava said to her “The basis for realizing enlightenment is a human body. Male or female, there is no great difference. But if she develops the mind bent on enlightenment, the woman’s body is better.” She is now venerated as Tibet’s top female tantric master. Machig Labdron, who was responsible for teaching the healing practice of Chod to the common people of Tibet, is considered to be an incarnation of her.
