Description

Machig Labdrön was an 11th century Tibetan yogini whose teachings and practices of Chöd (literally “severance” or “cutting through”) have profoundly influenced all schools of Tibetan Buddhism. She was unique in being both a woman and Tibetan, diverging from the traditional norm of male, Indian Buddhist masters. Her life is an inspiring story of a committed practitioner, at-times beggar woman, brilliant teacher, mother and lineage founder.

Machig’s biography begins with her previous life in which she was an Indian prince turned monk, named Mönlam Drup. Having achieved great spiritual and scholarly accomplishments at an early age, Mönlam Drup was repeatedly told in visions to go to Tibet to help beings there. At twenty, he entered a cave where he left his body and merged his consciousness with a wrathful blue-black dakini, entering the womb of Machig’s mother in Tibet.

Machig’s conception and birth were accompanied by numerous auspicious dreams and signs; most significant was the appearance of the syllable AH on the baby’s forehead, at the place of her third eye. Although her mother, Lady Bumcham, initially hid the baby, her father Chökyi Dawa recognized the mark as a sign of a dakini. Supported by her family, Machig developed her spiritual gifts from an early age; by the age of eight she could recite The Perfection of Wisdom in Eight Thousand Lines(also known as the Prajna Paramita sutra). At thirteen, Machig lost her mother and began traveling with her sister to study with several great teachers of her time. She soon became known for her depth of Buddhist scholarly knowledge and extensive recitation skills which outshone many of her own teachers.
