Three Songs of Milarepa, Tibetan Mystic
Milarepa was a much-loved Tibetan yogi, poet, and teacher. His ‘hundred thousand songs’ have inspired and guided Buddhist practitioners for centuries, yet examinations of them are few. The Yogi’s Joy explores some of these songs to help show how their lessons are relevant to us today.
In these songs we find such themes as fear, honesty, self-respect, practicing with others, the student-teacher relationship, and how we can make teachings our own. Sangharakshita draws out these elements, bringing alive the delight, joy – and challenges – of this revolutionary guru.

Believe nothing merely because you have been told it… Do not believe what your teacher tells you merely out of respect for the teacher. But whatsoever, after due examination and analysis, you find to be kind, conducive to the good, the benefit, the welfare of all beings — that doctrine believe and cling to and take it as your guide.
