Can you say something about the female lamas of our lineage?

Lama Ole’s answer:

We have many women in the Karma Kagyu lineage, and we even have entirely female transmissions. The Chöd lineage of Machig Labdrön is mainly a female lineage—she had this inspiration. The Nyungne transmission, the fasting meditation, was also developed and passed on by a woman. We also have several secret transmission lineages with union tantras that are held by women.
