- "Samding (lit., the temple of soaring meditation) is one of the most famous shrines anywhere in Tibet. It is in many ways unique in that about half of the inhabitants are monks and the other half are nuns, while the head of the monastery with all its branches is a woman, a reincarnating embodiment of 'Dorje-pamo the pigfaced goddess, one of the most popular of the Tibetan deities."
