New Song for Young Children: We are the Warriors

For Children’s Day/Winter Solstice, the Sakyong and Sakyong Wangmo offer a song they wrote for the young children of Shambhala.

We are the Warriors

Download Listen to the tune.

Verse 1
When we walk we are mindful like tigers
When we play we are joyful like lions
When we sing we fly like garudas

Chorus
We are the warriors of Shambhala
We possess the gentleness of the moon
And the fearlessness of the sun

Verse 2
When we smile we are delightful like dragons
When we run we are playful like windhorse
When we jump we are heaven and earth

Chorus

Repeat Verse 1

When we walk we are mindful like tigers
When we play we are joyful like lions
When we sing we fly like garudas

Chorus
……
(slowly) And the fearlessness of the sun

    Wonderful tune and lyrics. I have always liked a simple Tibetan or Chinese melody. Now….for the life of me…I could not quite get the lyrics to match up to the tune. If it were possible to get some children singing the piece as an MP3 file I would love it.

    Hi Charles,
    I have an MP3 (not good quality) but it works if you need it.

    I would love a copy of that MP3! I also had a devil of a time trying to get lyrics and music to match.
