Jetsun Kushok Chimey Luding
Short bio of teacher
Her Eminence Jetsun Kushok Chimey
Her Eminence Jetsun Kushok Chimey Luding is known by many names: Mrs Luding, Lama Chime, Jetsun Kushok, Chime Osel Rikdzin Bhutri Thrinley Wangmo, Sakya Jetsunma, Chime Luding or just plain Chime-La. She is often mentioned in conjunction with her family: sister of His Holiness Sakya Trizin, the sister-in-law of His Eminence Luding Khenchen Rinpoche, or the mother of Luding Shabdrung Rinpoche. On other occasions she is invoked as one of the three women in the history of Sakya to have transmitted the Lam Dre teachings. She is spoken of as an emanation of Vajrayogini, the enlightened energy of liberation. But to those who know her well, she is the earth itself, stable, unshakable, free from the eight worldly dharmas, and a pure example of the fruition of practice under difficult circumstances.
