Jnanasagara, Sea Wisdom, Ye-shes m'tsorgyal

These stamps depict the Tibetan female teacher Ye-shes
m'tsorgyal, who was one of the great interpreters of Dakini
wisdom in Tibet.

Her name means 'Sea Wisdom,' and is rendered in Sanskrit
as Jnanasagara.

Her writings contain in part a description of how King
Kalki of Shambhala will arise to restore Buddhism from
the ravages of the barbarians.

For more about Jnanasagara, Kalki, and the legend of Shambhala, see my post:
