More About This Book

Overview

Milarepa was a Buddhist saint and a singer of spiritual poems who lived in Tibet some nine hundred years ago.
Milarepa's story takes place along the high ridges of the
Himalayas and is based in large part on true events in his life.
Tibetans in particular, and others who are familiar with Tibetan
Buddhism, place Milarepa in an exalted status, as both a folk hero,
and a living Buddha. Milarepa's teachings are the inspiration for the Diamond Way Karma Kagy├╝ lineage, which is an unbroken succession of lamas (lama, meaning: spiritual teacher) dating from ancient times.
Milarepa's life also offers insights into the spiritual richness of ancient Tibet, which included the so-called "white Bon" teachings.
Some episodes may seem outlandish, but the reader/listener can decide whether those parts are true-to-life depictions, or whether they are embellishments that one might expect from centuries of re-telling a story of such epic proportions.
This text does not attempt to cover the myriad details of
Milarepa's life, nor does it try to explain the intricacies of Buddhist philosophy, but rather tells the unusual story of a uniquely spiritual man, and the many challenges in his life.
"Among the great realized yogis of Tibet, nobody touched people through the centuries like 'Laughing Diamond,' Milarepa
Shepa Dorje. Enjoy his words and fi nd inner freedom!"
-Lama Ole Nydahl, author, Entering the Diamond Way and The Great Seal
"As a Russian who travels around Tibet, researching Milarepa and Marpa, and such places where they roamed, I was very happy to read this version of Milarepa's life and found it very inspiring,
concise, and touching-unlike more academic editions."
-Boris Erokhin / Buddhism.ru

    Concise and enjoyable read, without the fluff of his other biographies

    I have read other biographies of Milarepa's life. This one appears to be the clearest depiction, with the least ornamentation or preaching. I also appreciated the (all too brief) biographical mentions of Milarepa's predecessors in the Kagyu lineage such as Tilopa, Naropa and Marpa. Altogether, a great depiction of an exceptionally spiritual and inspirational man, who should be as well known as Jesus or Muhammed.
