The First Dodrubchen, Jigme Trinle Öser
This text provides us with an insight into the life of Do Khyentse Yeshe Dorje by presenting a concise biography of the master in addition to those of his family. It, moreover, offers stories from the life of his half-sister and spiritual partner, Losel Drolma—an honored teacher in her own right and a figure on the fringe of the Yeshe Dorje tales told in temples.
Nun, physician, and treasure revealer, Do Dasal Wangmo was a well-respected female master in eastern Tibet. She was the great-granddaughter of Do Khyentse Yeshe Dorje and the last member of his family line. Her religious affinity and familial connections allowed her to follow a contemplative, studious, and altruistic lifestyle as a monastic physician and professor of Tibetan medicine.
