An Ode to H.H. The Dalai Lama
An Ode to H.H. The Dalai Lama
Description
Back of the Book

Ego is a negative emotion which, in fact is Evil Going On, But its the feeling of ‘I’ that makes us resolute and strong. It is “1” that helps one develop a great level of confidence, But, it would lead us to trouble if ‘I”s are in abundance. If others arc used for selfish ‘I’, it is absolutely wrong, But when ‘I’ serves humanity one’s faith gets strong.

Where does 1’ in the body subsist, From head to toe its form doesn’t exist. For each part proclaims its own identity Help build the body to claim a living entity. A body without a trivial part keeps breathing, And self brazenly exists there just simply teasing. But images in mind keep changing every moment, From the past to present and then to the future events

‘I’ when dissected divides into mind and body, But when one searches for ‘I, one finds nobody. For the whole body depends on all its definite parts But when looking at separate parts, the body departs

Visualize yourself as selfish person on right of your mind And on left there be poor and needy with miseries of all kinds. You, as a fair judge, think who needs more of your compassion Is it the selfishness of the right or the majority of left, in millions.

Your natural conscience will reveal who is more important For an odd person stands nowhere against mass at any instant. This solitary mindedness oneness of thought is real meditation, For then the conscience rules the mind and the self is just a notion.

Foreword

Life as a human being is precious and filled with opportunity; therefore I family believe that each of us has a responsibility to make our lives meaningful by helping others as best we can. As Dalai Lama I have had a special responsibility towards the Tibetan people, who continue to face one of the most difficult periods iii their entire history. In this book Ode to the Dalai Lama Gurbux Singh has charmingly retold in verse the story of my life both in Tibet and in exile in India and my efforts to relieve my people’s hurt and preserve the values and identity of our rich and ancient culture. The result is an achievement itself, but! would not like readers to think that this is Gurbux Singh’s only expression of support. for the Tibetan cause. His broad understanding of the Tibetan story is a reflection of his long friendship and many years’ work as a teacher at the Central School for Tibetans, Happy ‘alley. Mussoorie. In offering education to successive generations of Tibetan children lie has made a priceless contribution to the future of our people, for which I am happy to have this opportunity to thank him.

Introduction

Today I tell you the story of Tibet told and retold, That unfolded in the Land of Lamas in Tibetan folds. From the angle of the Lord who was Tibet’s central hold, Who had endured all the pressures by being exceptionally bold. Chinese occupation of Tibet is unlawful, arbitrary and in real a curse, For efforts of the Lord to bring consolation to Tibetans I salute him in verse.

in the following pages 1 recount the tragedy of Tibet in detail, That went out of memory of world without a whimper or a wail. But amazingly, question of Tibet and its status still lives to claim, That it had, in fact, lived peacefully and independently in its domain.

In the following pages you shall find only facts and not an exaggeration, For, in question is, peaceful Land of Lamas, a sovereign Tibetan nation. That did exist for centuries beyond the mighty mountains of the Himalayas, And blatantly usurped under the military threat was the Land of Dalai Lamas.

The early years of growth in Tibet for His Holiness, Were hill of intellectual pursuits in all its liveliness. But later the land of religious bliss turned into a mess, A culture devastated by China depriving of its blissfulness. The ultimate chaos that led to the famous 1959 Tibetan rebellion, Where peace-loving Tibetans were lain dead in Lhasa’s lethal pavilion. But the Lord, by then, had safely moved out defying the Chinese might, Had sought asylum in India to ask the world for Tibet that was its right.

In Tibet since then been perpetrated the most severe heinous crimes, Where religious ecstasy seems to have been lost for all the times. In India then were recreated all the emblems of Tibetan culture, Rebuilt here was all that that the Chinese in Tibet had fractured. Established here was the democratic Tibet’s Government-in-Exile, Where education of the young ones was given the main thrust in style.

Where now the educated Tibetans raise the voice for their subdued brothers, Under the benevolent guidance of the Lord their struggle for justice prospers. Where Lord is eternally busy in developing a world opinion in Tibet’s favour, Seeking eternally for an amicable solution inherent with democratic flavour. The Lords concerns now do go beyond the realms of the commonality, For his wisdom of Universal Responsibility is in real for all humanity.

This Ode is to praise the great efforts of the Lord, That had been successful in binding Tibetans in a cord. Tibetans in exile live in a unit keeping alive their identity, And to the world he effectively proclaims Tibet as an entity. And his message of Buddhism of mutual love and compassion, Is for whole humanity beyond the geographical limits of nations.
