The Hundred Thousand Songs of Milarepa: A New Translation with Christopher Stagg

Sept. 9th, 2017 | 7:00 p.m.–9:00 p.m.  |  Nalanda West

Join translator Christopher Stagg as he presents his newest book, The Hundred Thousand Songs of Milarepa.

Powerful and deeply inspiring, there is no book more beloved by Tibetans than The Hundred Thousand Songs, and no figure more revered than Milarepa, the great eleventh-century poet and saint. An ordinary man who, through sheer force of effort, faith, and perseverance, overcame nearly insurmountable obstacles on the spiritual path to achieve enlightenment in a single lifetime, he stands as an exemplar of what it is to lead a spiritual life.

In this authoritative new translation, prepared under the guidance of Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, Stagg brilliantly brings to life the teachings of this extraordinary man. This classic of world literature is important for its narrative alone but is also a key contribution for those who seek inspiration for the spiritual path.
