Funny Conversations 3

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!”


Tibetan words:

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”.
