The Divine Madman The Sublime Life and Songs of Drukpa Kunley by Keith Dowman



The Divine Madman is the secret biography of one of Tibet's best-loved saints, the buddha Drukpa Kunley.

Drukpa Kunley was a "nyomba", a crazy yogi who taught through outrageous behavior and ribald humor, through symbolic action, songs and poetry. Using people's emotion, neuroses and sexuality, as a tantric yogi through skillfull means and crazy wisdom he awakened their buddha-nature. He belonged to the lineage of Tilo, Naro, Marpa and Milarepa and taught the same profound Mahamudra yoga, but his most secret teaching was radical Dzogchen, Tibet's existential yoga.
