  2. Song Jigten is about the feeling of being in two universe at the same time. Falling from one universe to the other constantly. Snow flower as a metaphor for the emptiness nature of all things, the four elements Sa Chu Mey Lhung - Earth, Water, Fire and Air, and the distant sun, moon and the stars.

    འཇིག་རྟེན་འདི་ནས་འཇིག་རྟེན་གཞན་ཞིག་ཏུ་ལྷུང་།
    ས་ཆུ་མེ་རླུང་། ཁ་བའི་མེ་ཏོག
    ཐག་རིང་གི་ཉི་ཟླ་སྐར་གསུམ།
    ཀྱེ་མ་བདག་ལ། མི་ལུས་རིན་པོ་ཆེ་ཐོབ་པའི་དུས།
