CONCISE BIOGRAPHY OF DO KHYENTSÉ YESHÉ DORJÉ

CONCISE BIOGRAPHY OF ḌĀKKI LOSAL WANGMO

Lady Ḍākki Losal Wangmo was born in the Water Dog Year in the thirteenth calendrical cycle, 1802.

Marvelous signs occurred at the time of her birth, such as the resounding sound of the ten syllables [of Tārā] and the amazing sight of green light filling the entire house and emitting outside.

Losal Wangmo relied upon several lamas, including Dodrubchen [Jigme Öser], and she had many visions of the Three Root deities, such as Guru Rinpoche. As her mind was equal to the mind of the Drubwang [Do Khyentsé Yeshé Dorjé], she established countless fortunate disciples into the [path] of maturation and liberation.

In the end, she passed away at the age of sixty in the Iron Bird Year of the fourteenth calendrical cycle, 1861, accompanied by fantastic signs, such as a rain of flowers, a rainbow-tent enclosure, and the resounding of music. At the time of her death, her body shrank to about the size of a cubit.
