Song of the Road - Praise

The Poetic Travel Journal of Tsarchen Losal Gyatso

“Over the history of Tibetan Buddhism, travel across mountain and plain has long provided an occasion for profound reflections on more spiritual paths. Such reflections abound in Song of the Road. Readers of both English and Tibetan owe a great debt to the renowned translator Cyrus Stearns for bringing this almost forgotten work to the audience it so richly deserves.”—Donald Lopez, Chair, Department of Asian Languages and Cultures, University of Michigan

“Cyrus Stearns's Song of the Road is a rare gem shining light on the life of the remarkable Tibetan master Tsarchen Losal Gyatso. This beautiful rendering of Tsarchen's autobiography captures, with such freshness, the immediacy and profound insight that characterize the Tibetan master's spiritual journey.”—Thupten Jinpa, Institute of Tibetan Classics
