The moon of bliss ~ 17th Karmapa

Treasury of mind, this young white moon is brilliant with the signs and marks.
An aural ambrossia thrums a sweet melody of the teachings that mature and free.
May a gladding rain of nectar from this moon of great bliss
Bring auspicious splendor above, below, and upon this earth.


17th Karmapa
