The Divine Madman, The Sublime Life and Songs of Drukpa Kunley, Translated by Keith Dowman


 
This is the "secret biography" of one of Tibet's formeost saints, the Buddha Drukpa Kunley (1455-1570). Appearing in the spiritual lineage established by Tilopa, Naropa, Marpa, and Milaraepa, Drupka Kunley was recognized as an incarnation fo the great Mahasiddah, Saraha. He is greatly loved by the people of Tibet as a "Crazy Wise" teacher and enlightened Master whose outrageous behavior and ribald humor were intended to awaken common people and yogis alike form the sleep of religious domgatism and egoistic self-possession. This book is a compliation of anecdotes and songs passed on to this day in the taverns and temples of Tibet and Bhutan.

Keith Dowman, who has translated the Tibetan text into English, has spent fourteen years in northern India and the Himalaya, engaged in meditation and study of the Tibetan tradition. His published translations include Calm and Clear; The Legend of the Great Stupa; and The Loom of Light. Lee Baarslag, who has provided illustrations full of authentic details, lives and paints in Nepal.
