Happy New year to all with our new video of Tibetan warrior

Happy New year to all with our new video of Tibetan warrior. We will perform this song on Sunday the 10th this weekend!

Porok Karpo will cover WE TIBETAN NOMADS on 10th of January Bee-Flat!

(here is the text I roughly translated)

Deep in the timeless snowy mountains of Tibet
The lofty peaks penetrate into the celestial skies
The source of all joy and happiness
The source of all rivers, pure and virtuous!
The nomads of Tibet wonder in peace
Their cattle graze the grassland
Full of fragrant flowers and herbs
Abundance in nutritious food and drinks
Yak cheese,butter and meat
A history full of poesy and memory!

Porok Karpos list of songs for 10th of January Bee-flat concert in BERN!

1.Tibetan Joy and Suffering
2. Phayul or my beloved home!

15. A song with my Lute….
I have posted translations of most of the songs on Face Book so that when you come to the concert on 10th of January you will have some idea of the theme of the evening. Earlier this year I was blessed by His holiness to bring these songs to the world, these wonderful songs of freedom from the roof of the world! With help of Patrick Lerjen Muso Stamm Philipp Moll and Mik Keusen I have realised a true wish to bring to the world the message of the Tibetans inside Tibet in a musical niveau that has never been achieved! Music is a powerful tool to transform, transcend all the pain and sufferings! I feel Porok Karpo has done it! See you at the Bee-Flat!

Porok Karpo, The Band will perform in Bern for the first time!

 Come and enjoy the evening with sounds of freedom for your ears and momo for your taste of love…..

With porok karpo see you in Turn Halle bern!

Merry Christmas from a Tibetan Santa Claus!

(Last few years I have been performing Drekar, the wise old man who appears on the first day of the Tibetan New year. The tradition of Drekar goes back almost over 500 years. There are several common features between Drekar and Santa Claus. Drekar is bearded, so is Santa Claus. Drekar appears early morning of the tibetan new year. And so does the Santa on Christmas eve. Drekar says he comes from the east,the land of Buddha VajaraSatva….., so does Santa in his Sledge pulled by the deers from some where(?)! Drekar brings lots of Happiness and luck and so does Santa brings lots of presents to the children. so on……etc…! )

Yi Re Kyo

{text of the song}

Sun sets behind the southern mountains,
The white moon gets consumed by the clouds,
And the stars have fallen amid rain and clouds.
Heart saddens; unable to meet you three,
Heart saddens, unable to meet you three,
Oh, the sun, the moon and the stars,
The stars have fallen amid rain and clouds.
Heart saddens, unable to meet you three,
Heart saddens, unable to meet you three,
At the center of the planet earth — Kham, eastern Tibet,
Echoes, the reverent lama’s teaching,
Now, I am left alone and unable to hear such teachings,
Heart saddens; I am unable to see my lama,
Heart saddens; I am unable to see my lama,
Oh, my Lama,
Now, I am left alone and unable to hear your teachings,
Heart saddens; I am unable to see my lama,
Heart saddens; I am unable to see my lama,
My dear father and mother,
Ashen hair, close to departure,
Now, your kindness yet to be repaid,
My youthful heart saddens,
My youthful heart saddens,
Oh, father and mother,
Now, your kindness yet to be repaid,
My youthful heart saddens,
My youthful heart saddens,

{“Unable to meet you three” the “three”implies here His Holiness the Dalai lama, Panchen lama and Karmapa. Three are symbols of Tibetan unity and freedom. They represent the Tibetan people}
