Sample text

Now I am back, my Jetsun Guru! Now I give you the I;:>akinis' teachings I Please observe them, Praise and serve them The holy Dharmas that have brought me my achievement. Then Rechungpa gave the books [that he had acquired in India] to the Jetsun. In order to clear up Rechungpa's pride and arrogance, Milarepa sang: Do not be proud and pompous, My little child, Rechungpa, Whom I have nurtured from your teens. In a tuneful voice I sing for you A golden-rosary of song with meanings deep. Keep it in your mind, if you agree with it.

Because of this, I am happy and gay! When I roamed from country to country I felt as if I were a tiger cub, or a beeNon-attached to all and utterly free. Because of this, I am happy and gay! When I mingled with people in the street, I felt as if I were an immaculate lotus Standing above all filth and mud. Because of this, I am happy and gay! The Story of the Yak-horn 437 With cheer and ease I gave instructions through songs! It is the blessing of my Guru That brings me this joy. It is through resting one's mind at ease That Buddhahood is realized.

Since I realize that Buddha and my mind are one, I no longer wish for accomplishment! As the sun disperses darkness, When Realization dawns upon one Klesas and Nhamdogs vanish by themselves I Hearing this song, Megom was filled with joy. As instructed by his Guru, he then went to a hermitage and meditated there alone. Later he gained many merits on the Path, attained superb Experiences and Realizations, and became one of the close sons of the Jetsun, known as Megom Repa, who [in his lifetime] helped many well-endowed men.
