Milarepa Center will host author, retired professor and longtime student of H.H. the 41st Sakya Trizin, Elisabeth Benard to discuss her new book. Join us on Zoom for the live zoom presentation followed by a Q&A session!

 

“This invaluable work on the Sakya Jetsunmas offers an intimate look into the lives of four exceptional yoginis who were outstanding by virtue of both their birth and their spiritual accomplishments. Biographies of realized female spiritual adepts are few and far between, and until now this has also been true of the Jetsunmas of the Khon family. And so, it is a huge boon that the pages of this wonderful book are so abundantly filled with rich details of the Jetsunmas’ extraordinary lives. The book is filled with wonder and is bound to inspire and instruct not only female practitioners but anyone who is walking the spiritual path in earnest. I pray that it may lead uncountable beings to enlightenment.” - HIS HOLINESS THE SAKYA TRICHEN
