Of Fish Guts, Kings, a Prostitute Slave, and Losing Your Head

by Padmavajra (2007)

Talk six of the eight-part series entitled The Crazy Wisdom of the Mahasiddhas.

Renunciation is an important theme in Buddhism, and a successful spiritual life asks for single-minded commitment. Particularly key is our renunciation of the last bit of conceit about ourselves. Here, renunciation is given life in the stories of Luipa the Fish-Gut Eater and Darikapa the Slave-King of the Temple Prostitute.

This talk is part of the series Crazy Wisdom of the Mahasiddhas.
