Collected here are the songs of liberation of the great Tibetan Buddhist teacher Milarepa.
Milarepa - Tibet's renowned and beloved saint - wandered the terrain of eleventh-century Tibet, guiding countless followers along the Buddhist path.
A precocious student, Milarepa quickly developed into a powerful teacher and was instrumental in introducing Buddhism into Tibet during the Middle Ages.
He's known for his penetrating insights, sense of humor, and ability to render any lesson into spontaneous song.
More than any other collection of his stories and songs, Drinking the Mountain Stream reveals Milarepa's humor and wisdom.
Faithfully translated by Lama Kunga Rinpoche and Brian Cutillo, this rare collection cuts across the centuries to bring Milarepa's most inspiring verses, in all their potency, to today's reader.
The songs in this collection reflect traditional Buddhist teachings during meditation, liberation of the self, and the elimination of desires.
