Milarepa is the 11th century Tibetan saint who is revered for having attained enlightenment in one lifetime. He left behind a rich tradition of mgur, spontaneous songs of realization that are also religious poems. 

Milarepa

Singer: Jamyang Gyatso
Composer: Yonten Gyatso
Lyricist: Jigme Nubpa

You saved your father’s wealth in your mind
Kept your mother’s words in your heart
You wore your pilgrim’s progress on your body
You woke the Yarlung of Samadhi from its sleep
The yogi from Mangyul Gungthang
Whose name was Milarepa
Who left his footprint in the rock
Who touched the rock with his forehead

Milarepa, Milarepa

You gave up the mundane world, the mundane wife
You embraced the practice of dharma
Sowed the essence of samsara
Your songs roused the plateau from its sleep
The mgur singer from Mangyul Gungthang
Whose name was Milarepa
Who widened our narrow footpath
Who walked that narrow footpath
Milarepa, Milarepa
The mgur singer from Mangyul Gungthang
Whose name was Milarepa
Who opened our narrow footpath
Who walked that narrow footpath

Milarepa, Milarepa, Milarepa
Milarepa, Milarepa, Milarepa
