The sixth Dalai Lama was a bit of a sweet-talker. February 14, 2008

Posted by Sarah Todd in Dalai Lama.

In honor of Valentine’s Day, two poems by Tsangyang Gyatso (1683-1706):

When people say this about me,
It is no mistake:
I have more lovers than there are
Bees buzzing above this lake.

From the peaks of the eastern mountains
A bright white moon has risen,
And a young girl’s face
Shines round in my mind.

– From White Crane: Love Songs of the Sixth Dalai Lama, translated by Geoffrey R. Waters
