These deeeply profound songs of experience by Gelukpa scholar and siddha Kalden Gyatso (1607-1677) express high levels he attains and low points and inner struggles along his spiritual path. Drawn from his Collected Gur, two hundred and forty-two songs, they have been organized thematically to reflect his rigorous quest for Buddhahood. Experts in Tibetology, lovers of poetry, and spiritual seekers from any tradition will be uplifted by these songs.
The Superb translations are enhanced by Tibetan script, copious explanatory notes, a glossary of Buddhist terms, maps, and fifty full-size color photos taken around his hermitages in Amdo on the very edge of the Tibetan plateau.
