Abstract

Y I D A M T S E R I N G l an d o f sn ows The Sun God strokes a miraculous silver comb across the earth To form a Pure Land of snows that ferments the moon in a vat of ice. When you find the lake hushed as the aqua sky Don't you know it is His melody blazing its way through frozen rivers and peaks? This glacier's ice stores the feelings of a lifetime! That is why morning and night go on pulling the multicolored streamers of sun and moon, And I clear the dust storm's mud and carry fresh water to my little plot of ground. t he po ta la-- th e v ent ur er 's m ounti ng- st on e Silver under the moon, a pagoda towers to heaven; Golden stones dazzling in the sun, radiant with wisdom. The constellation of the ten cultures, its thousand halls; Thirteen-storied temple, messenger of thirteen centuries. This red-and-white palace is no facade embellishing the snow city. O venturing sons of the ages, know the will of the ancestors: The steles at the Potala gate are mounting-stones for you and me
