Subject: RECOLLECTIONS OF A TIBETAN by Tsoltim N. Shakabpa
Mar 07 2005 02:03 AM

This book is a cinematic picture of a true and gifted poet's struggles and victories: struggling through the darkest corners of life and celebrating glorious victories with humbleness.

The book is a welcome sight in this parched world of ours.

I am a poet myself and to say the best about Tsoltim N. Shakabpa is to say the least about a Tibetan poet who writes exquisitely in English.

I enjoyed the book thoroughly and found it envigorating both for the mind and body, especially so for the soul.

Please stop once and for all of talking about Ku-drgas and Kub-drags. We are all Bod-pas (Tibetans) and should be very glad that there are gifted poets and writers as Tsultrim N. Shagab-pa among us.

We should simply praise people like Mr. Shagab-pa and not raise the issue of Ku-drags.

Thank you for your cooperation and God bless all Bod-pas (Tibetans).

Kudrags generally speak from their rectum and think through their buttock.
But this kudrag is truly gifted and he speaks frankly from his mouth and thinks wisely with his intelligent mind.

The book is a brilliant peice of work sauteed with hope, inspiration and patriotism, and garnished with candor and poetic flair.

It says a lot for Tibetan authors.

The poetic genius behind the author is inherited from his brilliant and wise father & kind and gentle mother.

The excellent English prose and verses are his own doing and he needs to be highly commended for that.

When all is said and done, Tsoltim N. Shakabpa is truly a master of the English language with the blood of a genuine poet.

The author is a brilliant poet carving words of encouragement, patriotism and inspiration in a fashion in which only a gifted poet can do.

Recollections of a Tibetan is a "must read".

Recollections of a Tibetan by Tsoltim N. Shakabpa is truly a magical piece of work. It is absorbing, enthralling and inspiring. Mr. Shakabpa is without doubt a Tibetan master poet in the English language.

I read the book over and over again, and am certain readers will enjoy it as much a I did.
