All the water and drink you’ve consumed
From beginningless time until now
Has failed to satisfy your thirst or bring you contentment.
Drink therefore of this stream
Of enlightened mind, Fortunate Ones.
from the book Drinking the Mountain Stream: Songs of Tibet's Beloved Saint, Milarepa
translated by Lama Chonam & Sangye Khandro
