Tilo, Naro and the translator Marpa,
These three are yogi Milarepa's Lamas.
If these three Lamas are good enough for you,
Then follow this Repa!

The lamas, yidams and dakinis,
Milarepa makes his offerings to these three.
If making offerings to them is good enough for you,
Then follow this Repa!

The Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha,
Milarepa goes for refuge to these three.
If asking them for refuge is good enough for you,
Then follow this Repa!

The view, meditation and the conduct,
These are the practices of Milarepa.
If these three practices are good enough for you,
Then follow this Repa!

Snow mountains, granite mountains and mountains of earth,
These three are where Mila does retreat.
If these three places are good enough for you,
Then follow this Repa!

Antelope, deer and mountain sheep,
These three are yogi Milarepa's livestock.
If these three livestock are good enough for you,
Then follow this Repa!

Lynx, coyote and mountain wolf,
These three are yogi Milarepa's guard dogs.
If these three guard dogs are good enough for you,
Then follow this Repa!

Grouse, nightingale and big vultures,
These three are yogi Milarepa's house birds.
If these three house birds are good enough for you,
Then follow this Repa!

The sun, the moon and the stars,
These three are yogi Milarepa's vistas.
If these three vistas are good enough for you,
Then follow this Repa!

Gods and demons and some rishis,
These three are yogi Milarepa's neighbors.
If these three neighbors are good enough for you,
Then follow this Repa!

Monkeys, laugurs and gorillas,
These three are yogi Milarepa's playmates.
If these three playmates are good enough for you,
Then follow this Repa!

Bliss, luminosity and non-thought,
When Mila feels down, these three cheer him up.
If their cheer is good enough for you,
Then follow this Repa!

Nettles and garlic and leafy greens,
These three are what Milarepa eats.
If these three foods are good enough for you,
Then follow this Repa!

Water from the hills, the snow and earth,
These three are what Milarepa drinks.
If these three drinks are good enough for you,
Then follow this Repa!

Nadi, prana and bindu three,
These are the clothes Milarepa wears.
If these three clothes are good enough for you,
Then follow this Repa!

A great, inspiring song, Phantom59...
It looks like the translation done by Khenchen Tsultrim Gyamtso's students.....?
Could you post a hyperlink to show where it came from? Probably a good idea, in general, yes?
May any merit generated by on-line discussion
