One of the five founding Lamas of the Sakya Lineage, Sönam Tsemo (1142-1182), accomplished the incredible feat of memorizing the Chakrasamvara Tantra and other esoteric teachings before he was five years old, and passed away without leaving his body behind, and took his puppy with him! Her Eminence will tell stories about his life.
