Norlha Rinpoche
Is samsara's conqueror
The signs help prove it

A perfect rainbow
Master went to a pure realm

Like a birth mother
Most giving person I've known
Norlha Rinpoche

Infinite wisdom
So many different students
Guided effortlessly

Wish fulfilling jewel
All bhumis were accomplished
Chenrezig displayed

So lost and confused
The Guru shared the Dharma
Compassion defined

Elements dissolved
Guru's journey continued
Had to stay behind

1 of the 4 thoughts
Death a mere appearance
Mind is the deathless

Pride rears ugly head
The Master mirrors our mind
Ego shown its face

Student in such pain
Rinpoche performs tonglen
Suffering is eased

His form left behind
Lama’s blessing magnified
Outside samsara’s grasp
