The Voice of the Bee

The Voice of the Bee: A Song of Experience from a Pilgrimage to Mount Kailash is the open and sincere expression of Dzogchen Master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu’s feelings during a journey undertaken in August 1988 together with a group of people from the Dzogchen Community. The destination was Mount Kailash (gangs ti se), a place sacred to Bönpos, Buddhists, and Shaivites. Due to obstacles and unfavorable conditions, a detour had to be taken, involving several thousand miles and lasting one month. During that month of hardship and deprivation, spent almost entirely on board buses, all the emotions, limitations, and negativities of human nature came unmistakably to light. We find them expressed with extreme clarity and impartiality in this short song.
