The Complete Works of Sangharakshita Volume 19: Milarepa and the Art of Discipleship II

This is the continuing story of Milarepa and his disciple Rechungpa, first encountered in volume 18 of the Complete Works.

As portrayed in The Hundred Thousand Songs of Milarepa, Rechungpa is a promising disciple, but he has a lot to learn, being sometimes proud, distracted, anxious, desirous of comfort and praise, over-attached to book learning, stubborn, sulky and liable to go to extremes.
