Description About the author Contents
 
The art of composing spontaneous songs that express spiritual understanding has existed in Tibet for centuries. Over a hundred of these profound songs are found in this collection of the works of the great teachers of the Kagyu lineage, known as the practice lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. Many readers are already familiar with the colorful life of the yogin Milarepa, an early figure of the Kagyu lineage, some of whose songs are included here. Songs by over 30 other Buddhist teachers are also presented, from those of Tilopa, the father of the lineage, to those of the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa, as well as several songs by Chogyam Trungpa, the noted teacher of Buddhism in America who directed the translation of The Rain of Wisdom.

Rain of Wisdom, The Essence of the Ocean of True Meaning; Trans Nalanda Translation Committee; Shambhala Publications, Paperback, 384 pages, $39.95

The Nalanda Translation Committee was established in 1976 for the purpose of translating great works of Tibetan Buddhism into English.
