Luminous Moonlight: The Biography of Do Dasal Wangmo.

Do Dasal Wangmo (1928- ), great-granddaughter of Do Khyentse Yeshe Dorje (1800-1866), is the last living direct descendant in his family lineage. Do Khyentse was an extraordinary yogi known for his divine, magical, and unconventional activities. Out of the deep compassion of her vast realization, Do Dasal Wangmo has benefited many as doctor of Tibetan medicine, lineage holder and as a Buddhist nun. She is a well-respected scholar, realized practitioner, and as her story dramatically demonstrates, a highly committed monastic. Her life story demonstrates how, despite the challenging life she has lived during brutal times in Tibet, she has been able to give to others as a doctor, bodhisattva and secret yogini. Her story gives us a glimpse into the modern day life of a female lineage holder, augmented by the introduction from Lama Tsultrim Allione who had the great blessing of meeting her in 2010 and receiving transmission from her.
