Description
 
In this book Thrangu Rinpoche relates how the fearless Marpa left Tibet three times and traveled the perilous journey to India to receive the authentic Vajrayana teachings.
Not only does Rinpoche relate the story of Marpa's interesting life, but he also relates Marpa's relationship with guru Tilopa and his relationship with his own students. Given are also description of the practices and a detailed explanation of the Twelve Instructions of Maitripa on Mahamudra meditation.
Marpa was instrumental in bringing the tantric meditation instructions to Tibet. Under the guidance of Tilopa, Marpa was able to visit the greatest siddhas of India and to receive these teachings. Not only did Marpa copy down these tantric practices, but he translated them from Sanskrit into Tibetan and spent years practicing them until he had thoroughly mastered them. This was fortunate because soon afterwards there was the Moslem invasion of India and most of these teachings were destroyed in India. These teachings from Marpa continue to be practiced in Tibet until now.
