THE BIOGRAPHIES OF RECHUNGPA
This book traces the lifestory of Rechungpa (1084–1161)—the student of the famousteacher Milarepa—using rare and little-known manuscripts, and discovers how the imageof both Milarepa and Rechungpa underwent fundamental transformations over a periodof over three centuries. The author compares significant episodes in the life of Rechungpaas portrayed in a succession of texts and thus demonstrates the evolution of Rechungpa’s biography. This is the first survey of the surviving literature which includes a detailedanalysis of their dates, authorship and interrelationships. It shows how Rechungpa wasincreasingly portrayed as a rebellious, volatile and difficult pupil, as a lineage from afellow-pupil prospered to become dominant in Tibet.
