A "fascinating and inspiring" celebration of women's spirituality and the female mystics of Tibetan Buddhism--now featuring an updated and expanded author autobiography (San Francisco Chronicle) Women of Wisdom
explores and celebrates the spiritual potential of all women, as exemplified by the lives of six Tibetan female mystics. These stories of great women who have achieved full illumination--overcoming cultural prejudices and a host of other problems which male practitioners do not encounter--offer a wealth of inspiration to everyone on the spiritual path.
In this revised and expanded edition, Tsultrim Allione's extensive autobiographical preface and introduction speak directly to the difficulties and triumphs of women in the West who pursue a spiritual life, as she shares her own stories and experiences. Women of Wisdom
offers valuable insights to all those interested in women's spirituality, regardless of background or tradition.
