Milarepa, Tibet's renowned and beloved saint, wandered the terrain of eleventh-century Tibet, guiding countless followers along the Buddhist path. Milarepa's songs and poems are bold and inspiring, his language direct and immediate. Lama Kunga Rinpoche and Brian Cutillo render a faithful translation of this rare collection.

"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
