Milarepa, famous Tibetan Buddhist saint of the eleventh century, is considered to be the founder of the Kagyü school of Tibetan Buddhism.
His life story is one of the most popular and enduring narratives in Tibetan culture.
Milarepa was also a poet, spontaneously composing 100,000 songs of realisation. Michaela Lucas, a student of Sogyal Rinpoche, has taken a number of Milarepa's songs and set them to music. She sings them on the CD, The Actual Mind.
Sogyal Rinpoche said "the songs are quite incredible".
The CD, which is the first project of the Dharma Art Studio, is available for sale from the Zam shop.
All proceeds go towards completing and maintaining the decoration of the temple at Lerab Ling, and to support the Lerab Ling monastic sangha and other dedicated practitioners.
