    About The Druk Sakyong Wangmo, Lady Diana Mukpo

    Lady Diana Mukpo, the wife of Vidyadhara the Venerable Chogyam Trungpa, Rinpoche, was born Diana Judith Pybus in 1953 in England. She first saw Chogyam Trungpa at a Free Tibet rally in London. Within a year, she and the Vidyadhara met and fell in love. They were married on January 3, 1970. A few months later, they left England for North America. They had been married seventeen years when the Vidyadhara died in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1987. Lady Diana has had a lifelong passion for horsemanship. She is among a handful of women who ever trained in dressage at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna. Today, she continues to train and compete dressage horses at the international level and to teach the discipline of dressage to many students. In addition to pursuing her own career and raising their five children, Lady Diana often accompanied the Vidyadhara when he travelled and taught with him at some seminars and retreats. Lady Diana is the author of Dragon Thunder: My Life with Chogyam Trungpa. Since Rinpoche’s death, Lady Diana has taught throughout the Shambhala mandala, presenting both her personal experiences with the Vidyadhara as well as sharing her knowledge of the Shambhala and Buddhist teachings.
