The Splendor of an Autumn Moon : The Devotional Verse of Tsongkhapa
by Je Tsongkhapa and Kilty and Gavin Kilty




Overview -
“Some of the most inspiring verses ever written.”—Geshe Thupten Jinpa, PhD, founder, Institute for Tibetan Classics

The Tibetan saint Tsongkhapa (1357-1419), the founder of the Dalai Lama's tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, was renowned for his vast learning, meditational achievements, influential writings on practice and philosophy, and reform of tantric religious practices. A deeply humble and religious man, he expressed himself in exquisite verse.

Here, presented in both the original Tibetan and in English translation, are twenty-one devotional poems by Tsongkhapa. Each verse--dedicated to the Buddha, bodhisattvas, and lamas--illuminates some aspect of the Buddhist path. Gavin Kilty's commentary places each prayer into context, and his careful, artful translations will appeal to anyone with a love of poetry.
