May No Others Suffer Like This

The Nuns of Drapchi Prison / Le monache del carcere di Drapchi
Language: English

Song of sadness in our hearts
We sing this to our brothers and friends
What we Tibetans feel in this darkness will pass
The food does not sustain body or soul
Beatings impossible to forget
This suffering inflicted upon us
May no others suffer like this
In the heavenly realm, the land of snows
Land of unending peace and blessings
May Avalokiteshvara Tenzin Gyatso*
Reign supreme throughout all eternity.
* The Dalai Lama, who is known as the embodiment of the Tibetan deity of compassion Avalokiteshvara.
