What is your favorite "song"/poem from the texts?

Postby catlady2112 » Mon Mar 17, 2014 6:08 am

I have an interested in short songs/poems in the texts (such as Milarepa's). Does anyone have other traditional Tibetan teachings in poetic verse or in song, they really like?

Rang rig don gyi la ma!
This undistracted state of ordinary mind
Is the meditation.
One will understand it in due course.

That one is brilliant.
The Blessed One said:

"What is the All? Simply the eye & forms, ear & sounds, nose & aromas, tongue & flavors, body & tactile sensations, intellect & ideas. This, monks, is called the All. Anyone who would say, 'Repudiating this All, I will describe another,' if questioned on what exactly might be the grounds for his statement, would be unable to explain, and furthermore, would be put to grief. Why? Because it lies beyond range." Sabba Sutta.

Lord Jigten Sumgön's Song on the Fivefold Mahamudra is pretty amazing. The metaphors, in particular, are quite evocative.

The following PDF includes the text in Tibetan, English, Mandarin (Chinese), and Korean:

"The Sutras, Tantras, and Philosophical Scriptures are great in number. However life is short, and intelligence is limited, so it's hard to cover them completely. You may know a lot, but if you don't put it into practice, it's like dying of thirst on the shore of a great lake. Likewise, it happens that a common corpse is found in the bed of a great scholar." ~ Karma Chagme
