Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - - - - - - - «Milarepa s fame came from no other reason than his sincerity and honesty in looking at the truth, even the bitter truth, and transforming that into a universal truth, the truth of all beings, the ultimate truth." -Khandro Rinpoche Lama and director Neten Chokling s Milarepa: Magician, Murderer, Saint brings the tale of Tibet s greatest yogi to the big screen in a dramatic plot of greed, revenge, remorse and awakening. Chokling hopes that his film of conscience for a troubled age will cause viewers to reflect. If this film inspires just a single person to become more compassionate, tolerant, and patient towards others, I will be more than happy, he says. Teachings on Milarepa makes a wonderful accompaniment to Milarepa: Magician, Murderer, Saint as Buddhist luminaries such as His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa Orgyen Trinley Dorje, Khandro Rinpoche and Ani Pema Chodron give commentaries and insights about the great yogi s life. Ideally suited for Western viewers interested in knowing more about Milarepa s significance for Buddhism as a whole, these teachings also show how we can incorporate Milarepa's determination, honesty, clarity, and compassion into our lives».
