Letter to a Disciple (Skt. Śiṣyalekha; Tib. སློབ་སྤྲིང་, lob tring, Wyl. slob spring) — a text by Chandragomin.[1]


The path followed and taught by the Buddha in order to guide the world
Is within the reach of human beings with strength of heart,
But cannot be attained by the gods, nagas,
Asuras, garudas, vidyadharas, kinnaras or uragas.[1]
