Yidam Tsering

The Path

Yidam Tsering, 1981
Translated by Yangdon Dhondup

On the road I relish the speed of a horse's hoof.
In the desert I admire the heavy load a camel carries.
On the snow mountain that frightens the eagle
I see the yak with its tongue stuck out jumping like a fierce tiger from
the ravine!

Beneath the feet of those who struggle, there will always be a path!

Please do not to think too highly of the one who dives into the water -
The necklaces of my ancestors were made from the coral deep in that sea!
