Mother of Knowledge: The Life of Ye-shes mTsho-rgyal: This account of Tibet's greatest woman teacher was written in the eighth century by her Dharma friend and fellow disciple Nam-mkhai sNying-po. An important teaching for students of the Vajrayana traditions, the life of Yeshe Tsogyal portrays in detail the determination and devotion necessary to follow the Vajrayana path. For practitioners, this text can bring the stages of realization into clearer perspective: revealing the challenges and changes they have or are likely to experience, this record of Yeshe Tsogyal's path to enlightenment can strengthen devotion and resolve for following a teacher's guidance.
