"Everybody loves to talk about calmness and peace, whether in a family, national, or international context, but without inner peace how can we make real peace? World peace through hatred and force is impossible."
Dalai Lama - Words of Wisdom #2

SO ... May 15, 2007 4:00 AM

So, Tatanitak, in your study of the Songs of Milarepa and devotion to these materials, why don't you begin to post some helpful things, from the Songs, your commentaries and so forth, for the help and inspiration with which it can provide others. Also, it would be good for you to investigate the easy availability of the Biography of Marpa and of the teachings of the profound disciple, Gampopa, from your Lineage, the Karma Kagyu. I hope and pray that you will find the time to do this. Kindest regards, Sapan Rinpoche  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

THANK YOU VERY MUCH --- THIS MEMO HAS BEEN VERY UPLIFTING TO MY HEART  [report anonymous abuse]  [ accepted]

In the Glorious Practice Lineage of the Karma Kagyu of Tibetan Buddhism, MARPA is the teacher of MILAREPA, and, Lord Mila, as he is sometimes called, the most beloved of all Tibetan Yogis, this MILAREPA is the teacher of GAMPOPA! There are many stories. Here, from my memory, is one. MARPA was very hard on his student and cheala (disciple) MILAREPA. Milarepa had a very harsh childhood and young adulthood, learning and practicing BLACK MAGIC and killing many of his families enemies in a rather horendous period of his life. Turning his MIND toward the Dharma, Milarepa sought out MARPA and requested teachings. Teachings he received. MARPA, at one point, instructed to build Castles of stone and, once built, instructed his disciple to tear them down. Like in the Myth of Sissiphus [sp.?], with the poor guy rolling stones up the hill, then the stones being rolled back down again, and over and over, Sissiphus having to what seemed like forever abide by the task, MILAREPA had to complete his tasks. He did so. He built up and tore down many castles. Then Milarepa went into mountain retreats, into caves [many now famous and seen on many PILGRIMAGES that Tibetans and others visit in Tibet] and practiced the Dharma (the teachings of the Buddha and the lineage teachings of his Master, MARPA, and Naropa and Tilopa, Marpa's preceptors) and, eating nettles and surviving under the most profoundly difficult Mountain Yogi circumstances, MILAREPA became Tibet's most famous and revered Yogi. A Saint! Well, MILAREPA eventually had a student, a cheala, his disciple GAMPOPA. Now Gampopa came to Milarepa's area and sought him out, as Milarepa's reputation had "traveled" far and wide. GAMPOPA prevailed upon MILAREPA to give him teachings and Milarepa was very difficult but gave Gampopa many, many profound teachings in all the levels of the Tantra and the teachings of the Kagyu Lineage, of which both were to become such profound Masters. Finally, after many years, Milarepa decided that the end of his teachings to Gampopa had come to an end. And Gampopa was encouraged to leave his teacher and go back down the mountain, retreat from the caves, and turn to teaching in his own way. The day for them to part finally came. Milarepa walked with Gampopa down to the stream that was below the particular cave that Mila occupied at the time. NOW WAS THE TIME FOR ONE OF THE MOST PROFOUND TEACHINGS IN ALL OF BUDDHISM. Track this one and do not ever forget it. MILAREPA in one last teaching to GAMPOPA, let his disciple cross the stream. And then, Gampopa, turning around to wave goodbye to his Sacred Teacher, saw Milarepa turn around and lift up his robes, MOONING GAMPOPA [a great title for a book!], and Mila revealed his hairy, bestubbled, leathered up, calloused, and beaten up ASS -- a last teaching to GAMPOPA about the importance and the rigor of MEDITATION, of SITTING, of PRACTICING and of the PERSEVERANCE required for LIBERATION. And that is all. Now Randy -- Ngawang Arepa Tatanitak Dorje -- can tell you many of these stories, and take you through many of the 10,000 Songs of Milarepa, which he has read and studied many times over. And I hope that he will! =sapan=  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
