Feminine principle

New Yeshe Tsogyal Banner

After being supplicated by the Commission on the Status of Women and Feminine Principle, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche worked with the artist, Cynthia Moku, in consultation with his father-in-law, His Eminence Tertön Namkha Drimed Rabjam Rinpoche, on the design and symbolism for a new Yeshe Tsogyal banner for Shambhala Centre shrine rooms. The banner depicts Yeshe Tsogyal, the mother of Tibetan Buddhism, and renowned symbol of the feminine principle.
