Sonam Yangzom

A couple of weeks ago I received a letter from India containing the photo and a brief bio on Sonam Yangzom, the Tibetan nun I am sponsoring. I found it interesting that we are a few years apart in age, and decided to seriously pursue Buddhism around the same time in our lives, 18; only I still have not become a nun, yet.

Note: The scar on her forehead is from doing numerous prostrations in Tibet.
