In 2002, I established Jnanasukha (Wisdom Bliss) Foundation to fund my English translation of Khandro Yeshe Tsogyal's mind transmission to His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche Jigdral Yeshe Dorje known as The Dakini Heart Essence (Khandro Thukthik).
After this was completed in just two years, other projects and connections started appearing. The most surprising was accidentally discovering my karmic connection to Tsogyal Latso, Khandro Yeshe Tsogyal's birthplace in Tibet.
Fast forward and now every year brings more activities and deep, deep, happiness. And, when challenges arise, I trust Yeshe Tsogyal to always guide me forward! Thank you for being here.
All Best Wishes,
Lama Dechen Yeshe Wangmo

In the words of Shambhala Publications:
"The many layers of the heroic life of Yeshé Tsogyal, Tibet’s best-known dakini and female master, are revealed in this inspiring work. Translated here for the first time, this terma, or “hidden treasure,” presents an outer narrative of her birth, family, and struggles in a traditional male-dominated society; an inner account of her meetings with the great master Padmasambhava; and a secret chronicle of her retreat at Chimpu and her visionary journey to Oddiyana. This accomplished translation is enriched by the refreshing insights of six contemporary scholars and teachers of Tibetan Buddhism, making this invaluable guide to the life of Yeshé Tsogyal a treasure for practitioners, scholars, and anyone intent on the possibility of awakening."
