Lady Diana Mukpo was married to Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche for seventeen years and has always been a teacher in our Shambhala community. Lady Diana has helped in many ways to plant the banner of Shambhala in the West. Her book Dragon Thunder recounts her life with Trungpa Rinpoche. She is an accomplished dressage rider and trainer, competing at the international level.

Her vision is unyielding and good. Her intention is pure, her intention is to help elegantize the world... From her presence and existence in sharing my life, the Sakyong Wangmo has provided lots of sharp edges and lots of warm memories and lots of sad stories. The Sakyong Wangmo's vision and her fearlessness and her particular type of impatience has brought us here. Therefore she deserved to sit on the same platform with me as a teacher of Shambhala Vision.
—Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche
