Milarepa was the most famous Tibetan yogi, renowned for his harsh life and incredible spiritual practice. His "Hundred Thousand Songs" of direct mystical realization are read and loved by many but examinations and commentaries on them are few. Here, Western Buddhist teacher Sangharakshita takes three of these songs - the Tale of Red Rock Jewel Valley, Song of a Yogi's Joy, and the Meeting at Silver Spring - exploring them in such a way that the wisdom and teachings Milarepa drew out in his songs are made relevant to life for us today.
"The songs are about not only the harshness and remoteness of the Tibetan mountain ranges, but also the peaks and valleys of an inner terrain - the inner world of the tantric yogi." Sangharakshita.
