Milarepa is the most famous and most popular of Tibetan yogin and one of the greatest spiritual masters of all time. He is the ascetic who meditates in the solitude of the Himalayas, wrapped only in a cloth, and achieves supreme realisations by means of supreme austerity; he is the poet with the musical voice who communicates his doctrine and his very particular personal cipher to his disciples in a hundred thousand songs. Over fifteen years ago, although a tenacious "Buddah for myself", I established a relationship with Milarepa similar to Buber's I-You: the sublime, mad Gest√ľn "he was before me and filled the whole horizon". Today I think that his inimitable "infinite happiness with nothing" is also an essentially geopolitical message.

Luigi Lombardi Vallauri
From 1970 he was the Professor of Legal Philosophy at the University of Florence. From 1976 to 1998 he taught at the Catholic University of Milan, from which he was dismissed for heterodoxy. From 1973 to 1977 he was Director of the Institute for Legal Documentation at the CNR in Florence. From 1996 to 2000 he was President of the Italian Society for Legal and Political Philosophy.
His studies span a wide range of historical, theoretical and philosophic-legal subjects. He has published numerous works including Terre. Terra del Nulla, Terra degli Uomini, Terra dell'Oltre (1989), Logos dell'Essere, Logos della Norma (1999) and Nera Luce (2001).  These are profound studies of the fundamentals of general and religious philosophy. He lays the foundations of a carefully considered and practiced mysticism which lies at the intersection between eastern spirituality and western science/art. In 1979 he set up, and continues to lead, meditation groups that explore the possibility of a contemplative life commensurate with modern knowledge.
