Richard, very wonderful info, thanks for posting. I googled topics and got wandering in a fascinating world. I love that idea of a gateless gate.
Here's a website with some of Lady Yeshe's writings. http://home.infionline.net/~ddisse/tsogyal.html ________________________________ From: Richard J.

But, until realization we think we are on a path to the other side, and we must pass through a gate. If you do cross over to the other side, you will find that there's no other side, a gateless gate, and there was no crossing over. Go figure. "Yeshe Tsogyel, consort of Guru Padmasambhava, is the most famous of the enlightened women of Tibet. Women have a special place in tantra, but except for Sky Dancer there are few writings that present the spiritual practices and evolution of female aspirants. Here women are in an eminent position, and a path of practice is given for present-day initiates to emulate. Keith Dowman has added a commentary on the path of inner tantra, woman and the dakini, and the Nyingma lineages."
