One of the renowned masters of this religion is Milarepa. Magician, yogi, poet, hermit - many names have been attributed to this most famous figure of Tibet’s history. Today, we present to you an excerpt from the holy text of Tibetan Buddhism with the compilation titled, "Sixty Songs of Milarepa.” “Through wandering long in many places, I have forgotten my native land. Staying long with my Holy Jetsun (Revered), I have forgotten all my kinsmen. Keeping for long the Buddha's Teaching, I have forgotten worldly things. Staying for long in hermitages, I have forgotten all diversions. Through long watching of monkeys' play, I have forgotten sheep and cattle. Long accustomed to a tinder box, I have forgotten all household chores. Long used to solitude without servant or master, I have forgotten courteous manners. Long accustomed to be carefree, I have forgotten worldly shame. Long accustomed to the mind coming and going By itself, I have forgotten how to hide things. Long used to burning tumo heat, I have forgotten clothing. Long accustomed to practicing Non-discriminating Wisdom, I have forgotten all distracting thoughts. Long used to practicing the Two-in-One Illumination, I have forgotten all nonsensical ideas. These twelve 'oblivions' are the teachings of this yogi.”
