Like a lion coursing through the snow: The Song of Lama Jungne Yeshe

When Padampa Sangye asked him to express his realization, Lama Jungne Yeshe sang:

Like a fatally ill ascetic,
Seek to remember your own death!
Like a lone man struck with leprosy,
Seek realization of disillusionment!
Like a stone thrown into the sea,
Seek realization of irreversibility!
Like a bird seeking worms,
Seek realization of undistractedness!
Like meeting your only child,
Seek realization of recognition!
Like a lion coursing through the snow,
Seek realization beyond fear!

                                                                       ~~From Lion of the Siddhas: The Life and Teachings of Padampa Sangye (translated by David Molk)
