Ayu Khandro

Attracted to the life of a practitioner, when still a child she went to live with her aunt, a yogini, in a cave close to that of Togden Rangrig, a local master who gave her the name Dechen Khandro.

There Ayu Khandro learned how to read and write and when she was fourteen attended a consecration performed by the three great Rimé masters of that time, Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, Jamgön Kongtrul, and Chogyur Lingpa, receiving many teachings. Later she began the preliminary practices of the Longchen Nyingthig  and received the initiation of the Pema Nyingthig  from Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo.
