"On my part, I remain committed to the process of dialogue. It is my firm belief that dialogue and a willingness to look with honesty and clarity at the reality of Tibet can lead us to a viable solution."

A Poem: An Ode to the XIVth Dalai Lama

July 4, 2008

by Tsoltim N. Shakabpa

You are our eyes
When we cannot see
You are our ears
When we cannot hear
You are our guide
When we are lost
You are our strength
When we are weak
You are our blanket
When we are cold
You are our rainbow
After each storm
You are our light
When we are in darkness
You give us compassion
When we are troubled

Now at your age of 73
We do solemnly decree
You to be the Saviour of all Tibetans
And the Barrier of all that China threatens
