Poetry by Lobsang Chukyi Gyeltsen, His Holiness The First Panchen Lama from Recitations for the Tantric College (2004, Translated by Geshe Michael Roach)

This selection of poetry is from His Holiness the First Panchen Lama, Lobsang Chukyi Gyaltsen. The poems are meant to convey the First Panchen Lama’s own inner progress in developing the steps of the path, and also to illustrate for us how he conducted his life and practice in the external world, as a real example for us to follow. In each case, these selections are chosen to relate in some way to a particular lam-rim, or step of the path, that we ourselves are working on.
