Dekyong Yeshe Wangmo, the first daughter of Dudjom Rinpoche and Sangyum Rigzin Wangmo, was recognized as an incarnate dakini and was believed to be an emanation of Yeshe Tsogyal. She died when she was a baby. It was said that since her birth, she had no shadow, which meant she had fully attained the rainbow body while in the flesh, and that she also displayed many miraculous signs. All who saw her felt great devotion.

She was the elder sister of Chimey Wangmo, Shenphen Dawa Rinpoche and Tsering Penzom.

Dudjom Rinpoche wrote for her his famous prayer of aspiration Copper Colored Mountain Prayer after her death; it is said the inspiration for this prayer was her parting gift for sentient beings. The colophon says: "This prayer of aspiration is the long form of Copper Colored Mountain Prayer and was written from the heart with a saddened and heartfelt mind by the old father, Jigdral Yeshe Dorje, as a support for the journey of the noble woman, Dekyong Yeshe Wangmo, to the pure realm of Lotus Light. Auspiciousness!"
