This is a most interesting book I found in a bookstore in Chengdu. It comes with a couple of gifts. Two postcards and a drawing with poems by Samyang Gyatso, the 6th Dalai Lama of Tibet. The poems were originally written in Tibetan. If the verses were translated accurately, then they must be some of the most romantic lines ever penned by a holy man.
The poem on the drawing is especially touching. An excellent gift for someone who could have been but would never be.
