Tibet, remote and inaccessible, is less known to the western world for its literary than its artistic contributions to Oriental culture. Nevertheless, it has produced a literature of enduring beauty and significance, the supreme achievement of which is the poetry of Milarepa, its greatest poet and saint.

It is from this masterpiece that the selections for the present volume have been made?songs in which Milarepa describes his life in the solitude of mountain glaciers.
