The Hundred Thousand Songs of Milarepa: Volume I

Garma C. C. Chang 

The life-story and teaching of the greatest Poet-Saint ever to appear in the history of Buddhism. 

The songs of Milarepa, the famous eleventh-century Tibetan Buddhist poet and saint, are a synthesis of lyric beauty and profound spiritual understanding.  They form one of the great canons of Tibetan Buddhist literature, which still speaks with poignant relevance to the contemporary mind.  This is the only complete translation of his important work into English. 

The Hundred Thousand Songs of Milarepa "has been read as the biography of a saint, a guidebook for devotions, a manual of Buddhist yoga, a volume of songs and poems, and even a collection of Tibetan folklore and fairy tales."  However they are read, Milarepa's poems are an engrossing portrayal, filled with evocative and colorful imagery.  "The Salvation of the Dead," "A Woman's Role in the Dharma," and "Challenge from a Wise Demoness" are but a few of the titles of the fascinating stories in this work which will captivate readers with their dynamic insight into the living quality of Tibetan Buddhism.
