The greatest inspiration and rôle model for women, in terms of Tibetan Buddhism, is the enlightened yogini Yeshé Tsogyel (Ye-shes mTsho-rGyal). Yeshé means ‘primordial wisdom’, and Tsogyel means ‘queen of the ocean-like quality of Mind’. She is the female Buddha of the Nyingma School. As a historical figure she is mother of all Nyingma Lineages. Yeshé Tsogyel, together with her incarnations and emanations are an inspiration to women as a rôle models, and to men as teachers.
