Praise to Patriarch Milarepa

Yutang Lin

Magical powers capable of raining hailstorm
Enemies destroyed, knew to regret and repent
Karmic fruits, tried to avoid and escape from
Awareness of impermanence forced diligence
Faith in Guru allowed unbearable tortures
Clothing and food all pushed out of consideration
Lived in caves until attainment of full realizations
Transmission of teachings awaited disciples to arrive
Songs on the path passed down through ages
Dharma sons became lineage patriarchs
