I am movement itself,
But I do not waver.
I am a constellation of forms
But my nature does not change.
I am inseparable from Gesar, Lion Lord of Ling.
And as we pass from life to life and death to death
Every obstacle and hardship
Protects us from the drifting dreams of sleep.
From awake to awake,
Our Journey together does not end.
— Kyang Ko Kar Kar’s song to the people of Ling when Gesar is ill. As translated in Crossings on a Bridge of Light: The Songs and Deeds of Gesar, King of Ling, by Douglas J. Penick
