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.
from the book Music In The Sky: The Life, Art, And Teachings Of The 17Th Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje
