"Providing a rare glimpse of feminine Buddhist history, Niguma, Lady of Illusion
brings to the forefront the life and teachings of a mysterious eleventh-century Kashmirir woman who became the source of a major Tibetan Buddhist practice lineage. The circumstances of her life and the extraordinary qualities ascribed to her are analyzed in the greater context of spiritual biography and Buddhist doctrine. More than a historical presentation, Niguma's story raises the question of women as real spiritual leaders versus male images of "feminine principle" and other related contemporary issues."
"Niguma is Niguma. A book is a book. If you read with discernment, however, and put what is written into practice, you might just meet Niguma face to face."
