It was also in 1956 that she and His Holiness received the full Nyingma transmissions of Long Chen Nying Tik from Jamyang Khyentse Chokyi Lodro, who was in Lhasa at that time. Jamyang Khyentse Chokyi Lodro came to Sakya later that year to give them the Chak Mey Nam Shi, or the Four Unbreakable Practices, which those who have received the full Lamdre teachings are supposed to practice on a daily basis.In early 1957, Jetsun Kushok Rinpoche, her brother, and entourage went to India on a pilgrimage at the same time as the Dalai Lama and Panchen Lama went to India. It was here that she fist conceived the idea of learning English in a Western-style school, but her tutor opposed such idea. In 1958, her brother’s enthronement ceremony was officially held at Sakya. Several months after that, after the loss of Tibet to the Communist Chinese, Jetsun Kushok Rinpoche, His Holiness, their aunt, and a handful of attendants fled to India.
In India, Jetsun Kushok Rinpoche describes herself as being quite a tomboy. She studied the Nang Sum (the three visions) and the Dom Sum Rabye (the vows of Hinayana, Mahayana and Vajrayana) by Sakya Pandita. However, it became increasingly difficult for her to live with the outer discipline of a nun in India without the support of monastic life. She found herself the object of ridicule and scorn because of her shaved head and robes, and after consulting the Dalai Lama and her brother, decided to give back her robes, although she continued in the inner deportment of a nun.
She began taking English lessons from a Christian missionary, and there met Luding Sey Kushok, who was the brother of Ngor Luding Khenchen Rinpoche. Since the Luding succession is a blood lineage, and the Luding family was an offshoot of the Sakya Khon family, her aunt and several older family attendants conceived of the plan that she should marry Sey Kushok. While she refused at first, she was convinced at last, since a male child of their union was needed to become the Luding Shabdrung, who will eventually assumes responsibilities of a Khenpo. She was married to Sey Kushok Rinchen Luding in 1964.
