About the Book

“Refined, intense, wise, stirring, immediate, subtle, all the charmed qualities gather in Dropping the Bow. These translations are precious jewels. Like the erotic moods they investigate, these versions shimmer and startle with a palpable desire to be heard, and a mystical sense of impermanence. This is a transmission of a vital, extraordinary tradition.”—Anne Waldman

Two thousand years have passed since the first of these poems were composed. A new introduction prefaces this expanded edition of Andrew Schelling’s remarkable translations.

Andrew Schelling is a poet and translator from Sanskrit. He teaches at Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado.
