Chapter Summary

This chapter first presents a brief introduction to Blo bzang dpal ldan who is an author of the poem "Young Dondrup the Courier". The poem "Young Dondrup" was composed during Blo bzang dpal ldan's religious retreat at Rdo rje rdzong Monastery in the nomadic upper reaches of Reb gong. The term 'mngon brjod' in the"Young Dondrup the Courier" refers to the science of applying various terms, based on the characteristics of material phenomena: interdependence, similarity, relationship, cause and effect, base and dependence, actions and contradictions. Metrics (sdeb sbyor), drama (zlos gar), and metaphors (mngon brjod) are closely related to poetry (snyan ngag). Therefore, some scholars include these three subjects under poetry. The chapter then demonstrates how this poem illustrates these virtues by quoting a few passages. It concludes that this poem plays an important role in the development of Tibetan Literature in the 1980s.

Keywords: Blo bzang dpal ldan; Tibetan literature; Young Dondrup the Courier
