We are pleased to welcome author Elisabeth Benard to talk about her book, The Sakya Jetsunmas: The Hidden World of Tibetan Female Lamas.
“This invaluable work on the Sakya Jetsunmas offers an intimate look into the lives of four exceptional yoginis who were outstanding by virtue of both their birth and their spiritual accomplishments. Biographies of realised female spiritual adepts are few and far between, and until now this has also been true of the Jetsunmas of the Khon family. And so, it is a huge boon that the pages of this wonderful book are so abundantly filled with rich details of the Jetsunmas’ extraordinary lives. The book is filled with wonder and is bound to inspire and instruct not only female practitioners but anyone who is walking the spiritual path in earnest. I pray that it may lead uncountable beings to enlightenment.” .
