The Boundless Momentum of Tsogyal Latso by Lama Dechen Yeshe Wangmo
Momentum. . . we experience it every day but don’t pay much attention to it.
Yet, momentum creates the world—the evolving or devolving context in which all beings live and die. A still moment never happens.
As I was researching this brief history of Tsogyal Latso for this year’s fundraiser, I found myself in a state of deep connection with the momentum of my own life and I started paying attention to the impact of my every thought, emotion and action —witnessing my own karma in the making.
Being closely connected to Tsogyal Latso came as a surprise and changed my life, beyond the “work” of fundraising and visiting. Witnessing the evolution of Tsogyal Latso showed me the ways of wisdom and with this insight, my compassion deepened. Holding both—wisdom and compassion—I feel, is the highest of human experiences.
As you read my chronicle of Tsogyal Latso from ancient times through the centuries until now (below), I invite you to contact the momentum of your own precious human life and to connect yourself to Tsogyal Latso through your heart and mind. —Lama Dechen Yeshe Wangmo
