Poems And A Prayer

"To see the greatness of the mountains
One must keep one's distance.
To understand its form
One must move around it.
To experience its moods
One must see it at sunrise and sunset,
at noon and at midnight,
in sun and rain,
in snow and storm...in all seasons.
He who can see the mountain like this
comes near to the life of the mountain,
a life that is as intense and varied
as that of a human being." (Lama Anagarika Govanda, The Way of the White Clouds)
"One must remain in the vastness,
alert and lucid
letting one's gaze encompass
the infinity of the sky
as though seated on a summit
of a mountain open
to all the horizons." (Shabkar, 1781-1851)
"In the land
where celestial powers are revered,
where animals are partners in life's struggle,
where birds fly without fear,
where fish swim in freedom,
where wildlife is protected,
where men and women
cherish inner peace and outer freedom." (old Tibetan song)
"May the rain fall at a proper time.
May the harvest and animals always be beautiful.
May there be freedom from illness, famine and weapons.
May all living beings be well, happy and peaceful." (A Prayer Flag Text)
