Dakini Simhamukha

Tsultrim Allione, author of Women of Wisdom, will give a retreat and teaching on the practice of Dakini Simhamukha in northern California from March 25 to 29, 1992.

The practice of Dakini Simhamukha is a gong ter or mind treasure teaching from Ayu Khandro, a twentieth-century Tibetan yogini who lived to the age of 116 and who spent sixty-four years in retreat. During her retreat Ayu Khandro received this teaching from the wisdom dakini herself, held it in her heart and practiced it for twenty-three years before sharing it with another person.

Tsultrim's teacher Namkhai Norbu received the teaching from Ayu Khandro, practiced it extensively himself and in 1984 empowered Tsultrim to transmit the practice.
