The Life of Milarepa is the most beloved story of the Tibetan people and is one of the greatest source books for the contemplative life in all of world literature. A true folk tale from a vanishing culture, it is both a portrait of the eleventh-century Buddhist saint, Milarepa, and a profoundly detailed guidebook in the search for consciousness. Its meaning still penetrates to the heart, offering help today to any person seeking inner harmony and peace. The present new translation of this great work is the first to appear in any Western language in half a century. The translators have sought to render it into a simple modern English that reflects the direct power of the original.
