To You I Bow Down

  • Post category:Poems

Thinking stupid-compassion is the very best,
We gladly put pets and even people to rest,
We send our young people to fight a war,
Despite it only lead to more horror and gore,

We fill Mother Earth with chemicals and plastic,
Despite people and animals don’t think it is fantastic,
We tell people what to eat and what to think,
Even though it is pushing many over the brink,

True loving-kindness, compassion, wisdom and care,
To find all of that in a single human being is extremely rare,
To you Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse, I bow down and pray,
Please guide us all and for very long continue to stay!

Dedicated to the long life of Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche
