Sky empty and luminousby Shabkar (Shabkar Tsogdruk Rangdrol)
English version by Matthieu Ricard
Original Language Tibetan
Sky empty and luminous
beyond all attachments,
Me, the setting sun
resplendent with light,
Will not remain at all.
I pass behind the western summit
To reappear again soon,
Above the mountains of the east.
