Product Description

The legendary exploits of a spiritual superhero, and Tibetan Buddhism's most renowned saint--in a full-color graphic novel.

"From avenging evil sorcerer, to devoted Buddhist ascetic to enlightened being - the story of Milarepa's spectacular life is a powerful testimony to self-knowledge, transformation, and liberation.

It is the year 1050, and Milarepa is seeking vengeance on unscrupulous relatives for mistreating his mother and sister.  Trained in dark magic, he commands a rain of scorpions, snakes, and lizards to attack the villains.  But when his teacher rebukes him for his odious deeds, Milarepa renounces witchcraft to seek mystical truth.  He retreats to a cave where, after years of intense meditation, he acquires the power to shape-shift.  But most importantly, he achieves the greatest victory of all - master over himself."

Eva Van Dam is a Dutch artist and illustrator based in Amsterdam, whose work has appeared in several Buddhism-related books.  She has traveled extensively in Tibet and lived for several years in Nepal, where she studied the iconography of Tibetan religious art.
