Biography
Drukpa Kunley was born into the branch of the noble Gya (Tibetan: /, Wylie: rgya) clan of Ralung in the Tsang region of western Tibet, which was descended from Lhabum (lha 'bum), the second eldest brother of Tsangpa Gyare Yeshe Dorje. His father was Nang So Rin Chen Bzang Po. He was the nephew of Gyalwang Kunga Paljor. Father of Ngawang Tenzin and Zhingkyong Drukdra. Established Chimi Lhakhang (khyii med lha khang), near Punakha (spung thang) in 1499. He was known for his crazy methods of enlightening other beings, mostly women, which earned him the title "The Saint of 5,000 Women". Women would seek his blessing in the form of sex. However, the female consort had/has an important (albeit secret) role in many monasteries in the East. Thangka paintings illustrate sexual positions and some of the rituals that must accompany the actions. Visitors to Drukpa Kunley's monastery in Bhutan are welcome, but the visit requires a long uphill walk from the road. The monastery is very modest, only one smallish building, but it contains a wood-and-ivory lingam through which one can obtain blessings from the monk in residence. [citation needed] .

I am happy that I am a free Yogi. So I grow more and more into my inner happiness. I can have sex with many women, because I help them to go the path of enlightenment. Outwardly I'm a fool and inwardly I live with a clear spiritual system. Outwardly, I enjoy wine, women and song. And inwardly I work for the benet of all beings. Outwardly, I live for my pleasure and inwardly I do everything in the right moment. Outwardly I am a ragged beggar and inwardly a blissful Buddha. Song about the pleasure A young woman nds pleasure in love. A young man nds pleasure in sex. An old man nds pleasure in his memoirs. This is the doctrine of the three pleasures. Who does not know the truth, is confused. Those who have no goals, can not sacrice. Those who have no courage, can not be a Yogi. This is the doctrine of the three missing things. Even if a person knows the way of wisdom; without practicing there is no realization. Even if a master shows you the way, you have to go it by yourself. The ve spiritual ways I practice the path of self-discipline. I meditate every day. I go the way of embracing love. I work as a mother and father of all beings. I do the deity yoga. I visualize myself as a Buddha in the cosmic unity. I read the books of all religions and practice all at the right moment. The life is my teacher and my inner wisdom is my guide.[2]
