AbstractA translation with commentary by Thrangu Rinpoche on the Indian master Saraha's A Song for the King, a short but profound verse text from classical India that is a basis for the mahamudra tradition.

"Saraha's Song for the King is a sublime ode to enlightenment, famous in Tibet for nearly a millennium. Traditionally counted as one in a trilogy of poetic songs offered by Saraha to the king, queen, and people of eastern India, a Song for the King uses a series of linked metaphors to lead the listener through the stages of mahamudra meditation. The oral teaching on Saraha's Song by contemporary master Thrangu Rinpoche, is based upon a famous sixteenth century commentary by Karma Trinley. Thrangu Rinpoche's careful analysis helps the reader savour both the aesthetic richness and the contemplative instructions of Saraha's verses." Kurtis Schaeffer.

"A Song for the King is the most important work in a generation about the pithiest and deepest of Saraha's great trilogy of Indian Buddhist tantric songs. Michele Martin's translation and annotations are lucid and well informed, and Thrangu Rinpoche's learned but accessible commentary allows readers to use Saraha's poem as key to seeing, meditating, and acting in the profound Indo-Tibetan tradition of mahamudra, the great seal of reality." Roger Jackson.
