9788170306979: Spiritual Biography of Marpa, the Translator

Marpa was a Tibetan who risked his life three times to go to India and receive and practice the profound Buddhist teachings from the great yogi Naropa. This book tells this story of how he went and received these teachings and brought them back to Tibet where he achieved enlightenment while being a father to eight children and running a farm. Soon afterwards the Moslem invasion of India began and all of these teachings were destroyed and lost in India.
