Anniversary of Jomo Menmo, Renowned 13th Century Female Master

Today, 30 August, is the anniversary of Jomo Menmo (1248–1283), a female master and tertön, who was considered as the emanation of Yeshe Tsogyal and a reincarnation of Machik Labdrön.

She was the spiritual consort of Guru Chöwang and passed away by dissolving into the sky, along with two female disciples.
