A rare masterpiece. The cream of all his songs. His teachings on renunciation are most inspiring. Exquisite. What do you want- A smallsize life or buddhahood?
Few can compare to these simple, lucid, yet extremly profound poems.

Yes, it is as ARCHAIC as it can be. Yes, the wording of translation could puzzle even some Christian scholar. But one should really understand the nature of such Classic editions before the purchase is made. Then, one should inquire what is the purpose of Dover Thrift Editions before jumping into conclusions which are nothing more than a demonstration of frustration with own inattentive approach. Citation: 'Dover Thrift Editions of unabridged classics in fiction, poetry, plays, and non-fiction are in demand by book lovers, students, and teachers the world over!' What can be more self-explanatory than "unabridged classics" for "book lovers, students, and teachers"??
I was pretty amused though and managed to the very last page. Maybe that's because I have read all of them (songs, of course) before and some of them in two languages; I don't know.
Milarepa is the King of Tibetan Yogis. His songs are sometimes advices for laymen; sometimes they are metaphorical instructions for those who are able to understand them; by most part, they are depiction of the state of Mind which is beyond 'words-toys' as Mila called them himself. So, if one needed the book about 'worldly' part of Buddha's teachings, then this book was a clearly wrong choice. But, as I hinted above, don't blame it on the book... This collection of songs is a mere representation of a much larger collection of some 100.000-ish. They were sung by heart in villages across the Tibetan plateau before eager audiences for centuries, so it is fine that this little volume has no comments. But I do have one.
The historical Prince Gautama had a son indeed and it happen before his Enlightenment, which is right too. But Milarepa never had one, he became a wandering yogi and denounced the lay way of life...

I've used this book as a daily read/reflections now for a few years of and on and it doesn't fail. Where as all 380,000 songs or what ever amazing huge feat Milarepa achieved in his life might seem somewhat overwheling as a daily reflection. This book does have the dharma in it so works well. Its not an ill sellected collection.
