Homage to Milarepa་by Nāropa
jangchok münpé makrum na
In the darkness of the lands to the North
gang la nyima shar drawé
Is one just like a snow-capped peak in the rising sun,
töpa ga shyé jawa yi
He who is known as Töpa Ga, ‘Joyous to Hear,’
kyebu dé la chaktsal lo
To that great being, I pay homage!
Nāropa spontaneously sang this praise to Milarepa.
Very special day today for me not just the day of the birthday of the greatest lama of the Kagyu, I am heavily related to him. In my dark time, I was praying to bring my lama and found Garchen Rinpoche. In my light moments is always part of my yogi practice I don’t start my practice without singing something for Mila.
Milarepa learns that the affairs of the world carry forever we must let go of them and everything that holds us to practice Dharma.
He learn us that samsara is like a rose that smells very good but we got many thorns on it, his life when he passes from very rich to become a slave for his uncle and aunt. Help by his mother he became highly skilled in soccer and kill peoples because he suffered and his family suffered from them.
To his seek of dharma his devotion to Marpa even if he suffered from years to just receive refugees vows.
The world knows caterpillar becomes butterfly but they don’t care that it also becomes a moth. One is diurnal another nocturnal. Human once awakened can change the view to change self from Angulimala to a Buddha
Milarepa, The Hundred Thousand Songs of Milarepa
Today we complain that we must do ngandro and preliminaries practice to get there but we forgot that Milarepa, as to build towers and destroying them to rebuild them again, was his ngandro. When after years we reach the Tantric and that yes the new start of the path we must remember his teaching we don’t know when the time of death come there for we must hurry and practice no matter what.
