Poems by Kelsang Gyatso

Kelsang Gyatso was the seventh Dalai Lama.

He was born in Eastern Tibet and immediately showed himself to be a prodigy of deep wisdom and poetic gifts. While still a young boy, he became famous for his ability to spontaneously compose poetic verse. Inspired by a vision of the poet-monk Tsongkhapa, he traveled to central Tibet. He was immediately recognized for his profound spirit, and gave a sermon before thousands -- still as a boy.

In 1751 he became the seventh Dalai Lama.
