Detail: The Second Dalai Lama's mystical poems and lyrical visions (with a few here just for fun) are permeated with the ecstasy of enlightenment and born of genuine selflessness.
The Tibetan tradition of mystical verse is brought stunningly to life by renowned translator Glenn Mullin through these spontaneous outpourings of the ecstasy of enlightenment. Step into the visionary life of the outspoken and unconventional Second Dalai Lama, who was "crazed" by the wisdom of the nature of reality. Prefaced by a readable and comprehensive introduction to the life and times of this wise exponent of spiritual knowledge, these poems are shining, lyric illuminations of Buddhist life. Each is prefaced by a translator's preamble.

These charming, wise and songful teachings are higlJly recommended. -Library Journal
