When the renowned Lama Ngagpa Yeshe Dorje visited KPC in 1992, he sat down to listen to Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo Rinpoche’s music. His response was joyful. He remarked that even though the music was in a modern form, what she was doing was utterly traditional. He explained that when the Buddha’s teachings come to new lands, the first to arrive are the Dakinis (female embodiments of enlightened energy). And they sing. Their voices may sound somewhat unusual to our ordinary ears, but he said that the vibration softens our hearts and minds, and prepares the way for us to reach higher wisdom.
