Also included is the life story of Pema Lingpa and his prior incarnations. These revealed treasures provide us with a window into the court of Tibet’s great king, Trisong Detsen, and his sublime master, Padmasambhave. Princess Pemasal and the ladies of the court persistently query the great master and receive from him quintessential instructions on meditation and the mind. Their doubts, hesitations, and issues of gender are masterfully resolved in this impassioned interchange.
