Abstract

The poetic oeuvre of many Tibetan writers still remains relatively unexplored. The present essay deals with several pertinent aspects of the poetic oeuvre of Mkhas grub Dge legs dpal bzang po (1385-1438). It focuses inter alia on an ode (bstod) he had written to his teacher Tsong kha pa on which the early nineteenth century Mongol scholar Ngag dbang bstan dar [or Bstan dar Lha rams pa] of A la sha had written a commentary. Apart from a segue into Mkhas grub’s whereabouts from 1407 to 1431 and his troubled relations with the ruling house of Rgyal mkhar rtse, the essay points out that while there is plenty of evidence in his poetic oeuvre that Mkhas grub had studied the Tibetan translation of Daṇḍin’s Kāvyādarśa / Snyan ngag me long, the fundamental treatise for Tibetan poetics and poetic theory, no mention of this is made in his extant biographies, short as they are.  It closes with remarks on Ngag dbang bstan dar’s contributions to poetry and poetics.
