The biography of the "first lady" of Tibetan Buddhism, Padmasambhava's leading disciple and a great teacher in her own right. Written and concealed as a terma by two leading disciples, with passages of profound doctrine offset by episodes of adventure, spiritual endeavour and court intrigue, the book gives a colourful and fascinating picture of 8th century Tibet at the very start of the Buddhist era - a world now vanished. Following the archetypical student-teacher relationship, she completed the Buddhist path, including the Dzogchen teachings, under Padmasambhava's guidance.

"Yeshe Tsogyal consciously decided to tell her story as a help to us in our lives. She simply shares, without asking for pity or admiration, presenting her experience not as mystical or superhuman, but as something profoundly natural and human. Her youthful disillusionment with the ways of the world, her introduction to the teachings, and her training in them, step by step, are all told simply and starightforwardly. In fact, it is her ability to make positive and creative use of whatever came her way that is the greatest of all messages that come to us in her wonderful biography." Jigme Khyentse Rinpoche.
