THE HUNDRED THOUSAND SONGS OF MILAREPA A New Translation By Tsangnyön Heruka, translated by Christopher Stagg Shambhala Publications 2017, 840 pp. $39.95 (paper) Milarepa (1051–1135) is one of the most celebrated figures in Tibetan culture. A perpetra- tor of crimes and black magic, he turned to the dharma and, through unwavering devotion to his guru and practice, man- aged to achieve enlightenment in a single lifetime. After his awakening, Milarepa taught the dharma through spontane- ously composed songs, which were collected by his students as he neared death. About 350 years later, a wandering Tibetan yogi, Tsangnyön Heruka, penned The Hundred Thousand Songs of Milarepa. This text, which integrates Milarepa’s songs with his biography, became both a literary and spiritual classic. Christopher Stagg’s new translation reflects the liveliness of the original Tibetan.
