Tenzin Palmo was born in London in 1943. She travelled to India when she was 20, met her teacher, and in 1964 was one of the first Western women to be ordained as a Tibetan Buddhist nun. She spent twelve years in seclusion, practising meditation in a Himalayan cave and Vicki Mackenzie's bestselling Cave in the Snow is the story of her life.
