A-yé Khandro was the younger sister of A-shé Khandro. Together they were the sangyums of Aro Yeshé. The two girls were childhood friends of Aro Yeshé and they were given all the transmissions which Khyungchen Aro Lingma gave to Aro Yeshé.
A-yé Khandro was fond of dogs and several enormous black mastiffs with red felt collars used to keep her company when she went walking. She had good communication with the dogs, and when she was young she would ride them like little horses. She took after Aro Lingma in terms of her dislike for wearing clothes. She would wander around the Gar naked, even as an adult. This was quite accepted at the Gar, because people were used to practising sKu-mNyé and trül-khor together, but also because the two girls were regarded as khandros and therefore whatever they did was regarded as an inspiration.
