Milarepa and the hunter

An incident from the life of Milarepa, a popular Tibetan saint

 

Milarepa is a Tibetan saint from the eleventh century. The multi-talented saint is known for well-written poetry, enlightenment, and asceticism. He attained spiritual bliss with the help of his teacher: Marpa the Translator.

 

Milarepa spent his life in caves and survived on nettles. No one disturbed the saint ever. However, one day a deer entered his cave. The deer was followed by an angry hunter and his dog. Milarepa sang his poetry to calm down the master. This scene has been recreated in the Losel Doll Museum.
