Sky Dancer by Keith Dowman

A valuable book for Gnostics who want an example of serious practice and of female buddhahood. Yeshe Tzogyal, a probable incarnation of Miryai, sets a beautiful example of a life well lived. The tantric Vajrayana teachings of this text are not out of harmony with the essential Gnostic teachings expounded upon by Yeshu and other Nazorean Messengers of that Good Realm, despite the differences in terminology. The early Bonpo and Nyingma traditions that encompassed the life of Yeshe Tzogyal were influenced by the Gnostic prophet Mani and the Bonpo tradition itself is the eastern cousin to western Gnosticism. A fairly easy book to read & understand. Contains complex tantric Buddhism within a narrative story.
