Published by Wisdom Publications in January 2012, “Like a Yeti Catching Marmots: A Little Treasury of Tibetan Proverbs” by Pema Tsewang, Shastri, is a bilingual publication (English and Tibetan) containing 108 Tibetan proverbs.
From the Wisdom Publications website:
The Yeti, or Dremo in Tibetan, is a dim-witted mythical beast said to feed only on marmots. It sees a marmot, grabs the hapless creature, and then sits on it—saving the delicious morsel for later. And then the Yeti sees another marmot and leaps up to snatch it— while the first marmot makes a quick break for freedom. An image of bumbling, foolish effort.
This enchanting little book contains 108 traditional Tibetan proverbs—conveying the wit and wisdom of one of the world’s most unique cultures. The proverbs appear in English and Tibetan script, along with a brief explanation of how and when to use each saying.
Often funny and wise, these proverbs always remind us of our experiences in a natural and meaningful way.
