Lost Horoscope & Other New Poems, Nirala, 2023


LOST HOROSCOPE is a grand poem of loss, healing and recovery in the Covid times by Himalayan poet Yuyutsu Sharma. The title poem captures, in words of American poet James Ragan, "an enlarged memory of his childhood and his creative will to recover and rediscover what healing eternal truths lay, lost and buried in our collective unconscious decades and centuries ago."


The Second Buddha Walk: Inspired by the Second Buddha: Master of Time Exhibit at Rubin Museum, New York, Nirala, New Delhi, 2018


Poetry. Asian & Asian American Studies. Buddhism. An Exhibit at the Rubin Museum, New York, on Padamsambhava, also known as Second Buddha hurls Himalayan Poet Yuyutsu Sharma into action. Right there he starts working on a long poem inspired by the life and times of the Buddhist saint who in the 8th century visited Tibet via Nepal and converted 'Red-faced' Tibetans into Buddhists. Thus the Second Buddha motif emerges referring to Padmasambhava as the Second Buddha and represents the way in which past can become present.
