Publisher Description

From avenging evil sorcerer to devoted Buddhist ascetic to enlighted being--the story of Milarepa's spectacular life is a powerful testimony to self-knowledge, transformation, and liberation. This artistically-rendered graphic novel captures all the grit and drama of Milarepa's story. It is the year 1050, and Milarepa is seeking vengeance on unscrupulous relatives for mistreating his mother and sister. Trained in sorcery, he commands a rain of scorpions, snakes, and lizards to attack the villains. But when his teacher rebukes him for his evil deeds, Milarepa renounces evil magic to seek mystic truth. He retreats to a cave where, after years of intense meditation, he acquires the the power to shape-shift. But most importantly he achieves the greatest victory of all--mastery over himself.
