The story of Tenzin Palmo, an Englishman, daughter of a fish merchant from the East End of London, who spent 12 years alone in a cave of 13,000 feet high in the Himalayas and became famous spiritual leader and champion of women’s right to achieve spiritual enlightenment.Diane Perry grew up in London’s East End.At the age of 18 however, she read a book on Buddhism and realized that it could fill a long empty feeling in her life.In 1963, at the age of 20, she went to India, where she eventually entered a monastery.Being the only woman among hundreds of monks, she began her battle against the harm that excluded women from enlightenment for thousands of years.In 1976, she isolated herself in a 13,000 feet high isolated cave in the Himalayas, where she remained for 12 years between the ages of 33 and 45.In this mountain refuge she was confronted with unimaginable cold, wild animals, floods, snow and landslides, increased her own food and slept in a traditional wooden meditation box to, three square feet – she never went to bed.In 1988, it emerged from the cave, with a desire to build a convent in the north of India to revive Togdenma, a long forgotten female spiritual elite lineage.
