A Feeling Difficult to Describe

by Géshey Sherab Phüntsok (dge bshes shes rab phun tshogs)

Translated from the Tibetan by Erick Tsiknopoulos


 

ངོ་མཚར་མདངས་ཀྱི་སྤྲས་པའི་གནས་འདི་ན།

Here in this place, which gives off a marvelous glow,

གསེར་མདོག་ཉི་མའི་འཛུམ་མདངས་མཚོ་ལ་འཁྱེལ།

The gleaming smile of the golden-hued sun strikes against the ocean;

སྤྲིན་ནག་སྟུག་པོའི་གོམ་ཁ་རླུང་ལ་ཕྱོགས།

The strides of dense black clouds face against the wind:

དགའ་སྐྱོ་འཕར་མའི་སྣང་བ་ཡ་མཚན་ཞིག།།

An incredible manifestation, which goes beyond joy and sadness.

 

(Translated from the Tibetan by Erick Tsiknopoulos.)
