Tashi Kyidren (Wyl. bkra shis khyi 'dren)- one of the five principal consorts of Guru Rinpoche and princess of Mön. He took her under his care as he practised Vajrakilaya at Önpu Taktsang. In Bhutan, Padmasambhava took the form of Dorje Drollö to subdue demons that were troubling the people. He flew there mounted on the back of his consort Tashi Kyidren who transformed herself into a flying tigress.

Taktsang Phurba (stag tshang phur ba, See RT vol.31, Ki) is the cycle of teachings focused on Vajra Kilaya rediscovered by Ratön Tertön (rwa ston gter ston, see Translator's Introduction, note 41) at Onphu Taktsang ('on phu stag tshang) near Samye in central Tibet. Onphu Taktsang is the cave where Guru Padmasambhava gave the Vajra Kilaya initiation to Tashi Kyidren (bkra shis khyi 'dren) and Yeshe Tsogyal (ye shes mtsho rgyal). It is also one of the thirteen "Tiger Dens" (stag tshang) of Tibet and Bhutan. MR-ShabkarNotes
