A Thangka by Sonam Tamang to illustrate an inspiring poem from the Tibetan poet Shabkar.

“One must remain in the vastness,

alert and lucid,

Letting one’s gaze encompass

the infinity of the sky,

As though seated on the summit

of a mountain open

to all the horizons.”

Shabkar Tsogdruk Rangdrol
