Tibetan Language Reader, Part I
Short Texts with Translation Worksheets and Glossary
A wonderful collection of various short prayers and verses designed to provide reading practice for beginning students who are working with the Level II book and who have learned to read the Tibetan u-chen script and use the dictionary. The workbook contains a series of short, easy-to-understand liturgical texts common to many Buddhist lineages found in Tibet. Each brief text is self-contained and the selections are representative of Classical Tibetan literary style.
This workbook includes a set of Translation Worksheets for students’ use with each selection. These are designed to facilitate making notations when parsing texts for vocabulary and syntax as part of the development of rudimentary translation skills. This first-attempt-at-translation workbook also includes a very useful line-by-line glossary.
The TL Reader, Part I includes:
- The Refuge and Bodhicitta Prayer
- The Four Immeasurables
- Seven Branch Prayer
- Short Mandala Offering
- Prayer to Guru Rinpoche
- Tibetan Meal Offering Prayer
- Dedication of Merit Prayers
