    1. Believe it or not, I found this one in a discount bin at my local bookstore but what a find One of the best general anthologies of Tibetan Buddhist poems I ve found Several verses attributed to Milarepa, as well as many other Tibetan yogis and masters If you haven t read much Tibetan poetry, this book is an excellent place to start.
