Milarepa
(tib.mi la ras pa)


Milarepa (1052-1135) is one of the most famous figures in Tibetan history.

In his youth he had been a magician, but having seen the futility of that pursuit, he became a yogi under the strict guidance of the translator, Marpa of Lhodrak (1012-97.) He went on to live as a cave-dwelling hermit, and became known as a singer of many dohas, or songs of devotion and wisdom. Also an accomplished teacher, he attracted students who later went on also to found important lineages.
