Tsogyal Latso, Tibet.


Tsogyal Latso is the birthplace of Yeshe Tsogyal in Central Tibet. Since 2010, Jnanasukha Foundation is committed to protecting and developing Tsogyal Latso, a unique sacred site of the enlightened feminine in our world.

Since the Cultural Revolution, Tsogyal Latso has been gradually revitalized and expanded through the efforts of dedicated nuns, Tulku Sang Ngak Rinpoche, Khandro Tare Lhamo and Namtrul Rinpoche, Dorje Drak Rigdzin Yidzhin Norbu and more recently, by Jnanasukha Foundation's Lama Dechen Yeshe Wangmo and her global sangha.

Cradled in a famed valley surrounded by the legendary mountain abodes of the female buddhas Saraswasti and Vajra Varahi, Tsogyal Latso is southeast of Lhasa. Today, the sacred site includes Tsogyal's famous visionary life force lake, two artesian springs with the healing waters of her breast milk, and the original life force tree which nourished her as a baby. The main temple houses precious stone impressions of her hands and feet, statues, and a branch from her life-force tree.  Tsogyal Latso is also renowned as the place where the 14th century master Jigme Lingpa had a vision of sacred symbols on the surface of Tsogyal's life-force lake. He later decoded these symbols as the practice of Yumkha Dechen Gyalmo, the heart meditation of the Longchen Nyingthik.

In 2015, Jnanasukha Foundation helped fund the construction of a new temple and facilities and continues to provide for the interior furnishings, statues and murals.
