At the beginning of the third chapter, Spontaneity, is a drawing of MagÇig Labdrön that is full of energy as she dances on the sun and moon discs.
Ma-gÇig Labdrön (Ma gCig Lap sGron – 1055-1145). ‘Unique Mother Torch of Practice’ was the incarnation of Yeshé Tsogyel. Ma-gÇig Labdrön took incarnation as Jomo Menmo and then as Khyungchen Aro Lingma. Ma-gÇig Labdrön was the great Tibetan yogini who was the originator of the practice of gÇod – the Visionary practice of cutting attachment to corporeal form (in terms of the dualistic proclivity to relate to ones corporeal form as a reference-point that proves ones existence). Padmasambhava predicted that Yeshé Tsogyel would take incarnation as Ma-gÇig Labdrön and that he himself would manifest at that time as Padampa Sang-gyé. Furthermore, Padmasambhava predicted that A-tsa-ra Sale would be reborn as Ma-gÇig Labdrön’s husband, Topabhadra; and that Tashi Chhi’drèn would become Ma-gÇig Labdrön’s only daughter. Thus, all of the important figures of Yeshé Tsogyel’s life would take rebirth in the life of Ma-gÇig Labdrön. Ma-gÇig Labdrön was born with all the signs of a dakini, and by the time she was three, she knew many mantras. She learned everything as soon as it was shown to her. Her father said,
Her prajna burns like uncontrollable fire. I will call her ‘Burning Torch of Prajna’.
