A Bouquet of a Hundred Thousand Flowers. The Poetry of Milarepa’s Realization

December 9 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Hard horn & solid wood 
Can be bound if one tries,
But the harsh mind in mood
Hard to bind even you would.

Tiger in south, yak in north
Can be tamed if you tried,
But pride of mind and mouth
Hard to tame even non-sloth.

Hills & ricks, here and there,
Both may meet without care.
But the foe of mind
Hard to know, comes from where.

Queens & kings, laws & cause,
Can be avoided if you tried,
But no one can evade
Yama the Lord of Death.

Mice in hole, bird in sky
Can he catch by and by.
Hard is to catch the mind
And its fault e’en you try.

The Dharma to speculate
May be done and ne’er late,
But the self-mind to be void,
Must try to meditate.

Our father & mother
May be left if one tried,
Evil is hard to leave,
How change with fine feather?

Jewels and house and ground,
May be renounced if one tried,
But the craving of pleasure
Is hard to be voided.

Even a lovely sweet-heart
May be left if one tried
But to leave soft warm bed,
It is very very hard.
