Akha’s explications are precise but not parochial. Akha’s language is often condensed but never dense. He does not engage in long-winded discourses, but like a field commander engaged in a battle to awaken the human soul he transmits curt, nearly telegraphic, messages. With his urgency and brevity, this artisan-artist speaks in an almost modern voice.

On the path of a spiritual quest Akha’s poems provide a map, a shelter, and an affirmation of immediate knowledge. Once the transitory discomfort of being awakened has passed, one realizes the enormous compassion with which Akha’ shares with us his recognition of the Supreme Being as well as the unity of us all.
