Drinking the Mountain Stream: Drinking the Mountain Stream:  

Milarepa, Tibet's renowned and beloved saint, wandered the terrain of eleventh-century Tibet, guiding countless followers along the Buddhist path. Milarepa's songs and poems are bold and inspiring, his language direct and immediate. Lama Kunga Rinpoche and Brian Cutillo render a faithful translation of this rare collection.

All the water and drink you've consumed
Through beginningless time until now
Has failed to shake thirst or bring you contentment.
Drink therefore this stream
Of enlightenment mind, fortunate ones.

--Milarepa

The Song on Reaching the Mountain Peak

Hearken, my sons! If you want
To climb the mountain peak
You should hold the Self-mind's light,
Tie it with a great "Knot,"
And catch it with a firm "Hook."
If you practice thus
You can climb the mountain peak
To enjoy the view.

Come, you gifted men and women,
Drink the brew of Experience!
Come "inside" to enjoy the scene --
See it and enjoy it to the full!
The Incapable remain outside;
Those who cannot drink pure
Beer may quaff small beer.
He who cannot strive for Bodhi,
Should strive for superior birth.

--Milarepa
