Spine and pages lightly toned. 1974 Trade Paperback. xxviii, 315 pp. This reissue of the fascinating biography of Milarepa--the great Tibetan religious leader who lived over 800 years ago--completes Evans-Wentz's four-volume Tibetan series. In his preface to the second edition of this work, which first appeared in 1958, Evans-Wentz focuses on the similarities between the life and teachings of Milarepa and the greatest of modern India's spiritual leaders, Mahatma Ghandhi. The late Lama Kazi Dawa-Samdup--who served as Evans-Wentz's Tibetan guru for many years--has provided a translation from the original Tibetan which reveals to Western readers how one of India's great teachers actually lived. Jetsun Milarepa (Tibetan: ??????????????????, Wylie: rje btsun mi la ras pa, 1028/40–1111/23)[1] was a Tibetan siddha, who famously was a murderer as a young man then turned to Buddhism to become an accomplished buddha despite his past. He is generally considered as one of Tibet's most famous yogis and poets, serving as an example for the Buddhist life. He was a student of Marpa Lotsawa, and a major figure in the history of the Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism.[1]
