One of the older nuns seen in “Blessings: The Tsoknyi Nangchen Nuns of Tibet” is Sherab Zangmo, considered to be one of the most accomplished practitioners in Nangchen. Sherab Zangmo became a nun at the age of 20.

Although she was still a young nun at the time, this was not a temporary meditation experience, but a profound realization, very rarely accomplished in such a sudden fashion.
