My native land is all lands

by Shabkar (Shabkar Tsogdruk Rangdrol)

English version by Matthieu Ricard
Original Language Tibetan

My native land is all lands,
In no particular direction.
My monastery is the solitary mountains,
In no particular place.
My family is all the beings of the six realms.
My name is "Hermit Protected by the Three Jewels."

-- from The Life of Shabkar: The Autobiography of a Tibetan Yogin, by Shabkar Tsogdruk Rongdrol / Translated by Matthieu Ricard
