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 Kagyü 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.
