Description:
In this song the 6th Dalai Lama, lonely in Lhasa, describes the clouds in the Lhasa sky and wonders if they come from his father’s native village. Then he spots a ray of light through the clouds and thinks of it as a lamp lit by his lover or his mother. He then avers that he will return someday to meet his mother. Please see accompanying field notes.
