Anthology of Tibetan Poets


G.C. (Gendun Choephel)


If I Die

If I die my dear ones
Don't cry for me
For I never cried for anyone
It's time I part with me...
Your prayers will not hear me
For I have parted with my hearing 
Your worries will not affect me
For I will still be looking for compassion...

So be kind and compassionate
While you can
Once you go beyond the cold tombs
It's too cold
And begin my way to another womb...

Visions in Snippets

Mountain looks in the sea For his image and found The sea is green ........... And little road Yellow as my race Dust of the dust They must not bruise you
