Dharma Publishing is thrilled to present it's newest book:

Songs of Shabkar: The Path of a Tibetan Yogi Inspired by Nature

Translations and photographs by Victoria Sujata.


In celebration of it's release, we are offering 20% off of the paperback price of $35 from now until May 30th.

These deeply personal songs of realization by Nyingmapa yogi Shabkar Tshogdruk Rangdrol (1781–1851), composed in a simple yet richly poetic style, charm by their beauty and directness, often expressing the delights of nature.  Drawn from the vast and mostly untranslated collection The Festival of Melodious Songs, they have been organized thematically to reflect Shabkar's quest for spiritual awareness.
Lovers of poetry, experts in Tibetology, and spiritual seekers of any tradition will be uplifted by Shabkar's rigorous honesty on the path toward self-understanding.
Dr. Sujata's superb translations are enhanced by the Tibetan script, copious explanatory notes, a glossary of Buddhist terms, maps, and over fifty  full-size color photos.
Be inspired by the wide open sky.
Mind without center or edge - Meditate on that!
Though inner thoughts build up like southern clouds,
Mind, like the sky is at ease.

Be inspired by the luminous sun.
Mind without shadow or light - Meditate on that!
Though inner thoughts radiate like beams,
Mind, like the sun, is at ease.
