Tsangyang Gyatso (1683-?), the sixth reincarnation of Dalai Lama, is a well-known Tibetan poet. The first translation of his works into Chinese and English in 1930 marks the beginning of lasting popularity of this monk-poet in the realm of world literature. With the focus on the translation, misreading and remaking, this conversation aims at shedding some light on the dissemination and reception of the poetry of Tsangyang.
