Enticing, captivating Lady, the phenomenal world is free as it stands. Ask your superior mind for blessing. Bath in the seed-sphere of your pure potential. There is nothing better than Tsogyelma.

El Fasher, Africa The map around El Fasher Holds more and larger blanks Than any territory we traversed Miles of dotted red lines are native tracks According to the map’s legend West of the city is a hilly country Wherein the map optimistically indicates Rivers which start bravely but after about an Inch or two end in the oblivion of the thirsty sands

Act II, Scene 1: Satisfaction, In the palace library, huge scrolls of Tibetan text unfurl. Yeshe studies the manuscripts. The king enters singing of his unrequited love but she remains absorbed in study, unmoved. Suddenly, Padma appears in a roar of righteous rage, on fire and formidable. Padma and the king negotiate; servants carry trays with offerings which Padma rejects; the king finally offers Yeshe. She gazes at Padma. In a shower of rose petals, they embrace and retreat together.
