Book Description
About the Book

The name of my clan is Khyungpo; my family name is Josay, and my name is Milarepa. In my youth, I committed black deeds. In maturity, I practiced innocence. Now, released from both good and evil, I have destroyed the root of karmic action and shall have no reason for action in future."

Milarepa is the sixth generation of the Khyungpo tribe descending from the great clan of nomadic herdsmen in the North of Central Tibet and in direct descent from a yogi named Josay, son of a lama of the Nyingmapa lineage originating in the eighth century under Guru Padmasambhav and Vimalmitra, both originally from India. The lineage is one of the four main Tibetan schools of Buddhism and still exists.

We learn from available biographies of Milarepa that both he and his disciple Rechung practiced rigorous sadhana and attained divine bodies. "Rechung went to heaven with his body. His physical gross body had been transformed into a subtle body, and so he did not leave a lifeless body behind on earth." The example of Milarepa and his disciple Rechung tells us that Buddhism accepted the principle of the divine body and there have been several Buddhist yogis who had attained such divine bodies.

This establishes two important truths: 1. The principle of the divine body as delineated in the Indian Scriptures is not a myth and 2. Yoga as a spiritual practice is not the exclusive province of anyone religion or sect or spiritual persuasion but is for all mankind, thereby reaffirming two important principles of Sanatan Dharma: God is one and the human family is one.

About the Author

Swami Rajarshi Muni was born on 11th February 1931 in Porbandar, in western Gujarat, in the princely lineage of the Jadeja rulers of Kutch. He received sannyas initiation in February 1971 and thereafter devoted himself almost exclusively to secluded Yoga sadhana of the khechari mudra expounded and practiced in the modern spiritual tradition of Lord Lakulish, twenty-eighth incarnation of Lord Shiv, in which he is the present spiritual head. In 1993, in response to a spiritual calling, he temporarily interrupted his self- imposed seclusion to undertake a worldwide campaign to spread the knowledge of Yoga and the moral, cultural and spiritual values of the Sanatan (eternal) Indian heritage. He resumed secluded sadhana in 2007 to complete his Yoga and establish the authenticity of the principle of the indestructible Divine Body, on which he has shed profound light from a position of eminent qualification based on personal practice and experience. He is an advanced yogi, a realized Master in the classic mould of Indian adepts, knower of the kundalini and master of the khechari mudra. The extraordinary heights he has attained in his Yoga practice establish him firmly as the latest addition to the lineage of siddhs (adepts) which has long embellished the Indian spiritual tradition.
