Songs of Tibet’s Beloved Saint, Milarepa

“Offers the English-speaking reader a satisfying taste of Tibetan flavored Dharma.”—Tibetan Review

“Milarepa achieved the highest attainable illumination and the mental power that enabled him to guide innumerable disciples. His ability to present complex teachings in a simple, lucid style is astonishing. When his patrons and disciples made a request or asked him a question, he answered in spontaneously composed free-flowing poems or lyric songs. It is said that he composed 100,000 songs to communicate his ideas in his teachings and conversations.”—Musician Eliane Radigue, in the notes for her Songs of Milarepa album, based on this book
