On Yoginis:

“There were certainly many great female practitioners in Tibet.  But because the lacked a background of philosophical training, they could not aspire to write books, gather disciples, go on Dharma tours, and give talks.  When we read the histories, we will notice that nuns are distinguished by their absence.  But this doesn’t mean they weren’t there.  Even today if you travel to Tibet and go beyond the tourist trail into the regions where there are caves, you will find almost eighty percent of those living up there and practicing are women.”
