AbstractThe "100,000 Songs has been read as the biography of a saint, a guide book for devotions, a manual of Buddhist

yoga, and a volume of songs and poems.
From the chapter "Milarepa's Meeting with Dharma Bodhi" He who can watch his mind without distraction needs no talk or chat;

he who can absorb himself in self-awareness, need not sit stiffly like a corpse; if one knows the nature of all forms, the

Eight Worldly Desires will vanish of themselves. If no desire or hatred is within his heart, he needs no pretense or show

...If someone cannot subdue habitual thinking and wandering thoughts, what will be the use of observing the mind? If one

cannot conquer ego-clinging and pleasure craving, what will be the use of meditating for an age? He who does not strive for

altruistic deeds, will be overtaken by his pride and gain no progress. If one follows not the Guru's guidance, what benefit

can he gain by being with pleasant friends? ...The instructions one has learned will become profounder if restfully he

remains alone.
