Milarepa 4/19

So, in the previous part, Milarepa was talking about his teacher, how he wishes to see him.

 

“The more I meditate, the more I long for my guru.

Is Dagmema still living with you?

I’m more grateful to her than my own mother.

If she is there I’ll be happy.

Though the journey is long, I’d be happy to see her.

Though the road is perilous, I’d like to join  her.

The more I contemplate, the more I think of you.

The more I meditate, the more I think of my guru.”

 

(Dagmema was Marpa‘s wife, Milarepa’s teacher’s wife.)

 

“I would be so happy to join in the gathering there.

Maybe you’re practicing Hevajra.

Although I’m simpledminded, I do wish to learn.

Although I’m ignorant long to recite.

The more I contemplate, the more I think of you.

The more I meditate, the more I think of my guru.

 

Maybe now you’re giving the four intiations.

If I could join you all, I’d be so happy.

Though I have hardly any merit, I want to be initiated.

Although I’m too poor to offer much to you,

I desire to be initiated.

The more I contemplate, the more I think of you.

The more I meditate, the more I think of my guru.

 

Maybe now you’re teaching the six yogas of Naropa.

If I could be there, I’d be so happy.

Though I’m not hardworking, I want to learn.

Though I am not persevering, I want to practice.

The more I contemplate, the more I think of you.

The more I meditate, the more I think of my guru.

 

The brothers from Weu and Tsang might be there.

If that’s the case, I’d be glad.

Even though I’m not as realized as they are,

I’d like to compare notes.

Though in my faith and longing, I’ve never really been apart from you,

I’m tortured now by my need to see you.

This painful longing tortures me.

This is agony. I’m suffocating.

Please, guru, relieve my suffering!”
