The Tibetan Marpa had sought Buddhist instruction for years in India, where he studied with renowned Indian Buddhist masters. He studied at the Nalanda University in India, where Naropa taught.

It had a sobering effect on me to perceive of such a larger than life character such as Milarepa having such simple problems like me, and be perplexed like me.

    Remembered my life story, Or heard of it or of my name. In the land of Abhirati may I once again meet Those who act and practice with my life in mind, Those who write or teach or listen to it, Read it or pay it respect, And those who emulate my life. –Milarepa to his .
