Pema Chodron: “Ani Damchoe Wangmo! One four three!”
Me: (thinking a moment) “I love you, too.”
Ngawang Sherab: “ga re za?”
Pema Chodron: “One zer na I, four zer na love, three zer na you.”
(from the balcony outside) Lobsang Palmo*: Damchoe Wangmo! One four three!
Me: “Khyerang la one four three lo!”
ga re za = what did you say?
zer na= if you say that it means…
khyed rang la = to you
lo= not sure how to translate this, cute, girly way to end your sentences, very common among young nuns.
* Lobsang Palmo is a very Eastern Tibetan nun who speaks no English, except, apparently “one four three”.
