This ornate poem, composed by Shelkar Lingpa (Shel dkar gling pa, 1876–1913) in the Indian hill station of Darjeeling, evokes everyday life in faraway Lhasa, even as it makes not- so-subtle barbs at the Chinese military that had forced him into exile. Read the introduction by Andrew Quintman and Kurtis R. Schaeffer.
