Yeshe Tsogyal, consort of Guru Padmasambhava, is one of the most famous of the enlightened women of Tibet. Few works deal with the spiritual practices and evolution of female aspirants, and for this reason Sky Dancer is virtually unique in the biographical literature of Tibet. Women are shown in an eminent position and a path of practice is given for present-day initiates to emulate. Tsogyal’s experiences and her detailed instructions to her disciples are inspirational for today’s practitioners.
