. He was the second patriarch of the Kargyupa sect, the first being Milarepa's guru Marpa (1012–97), who studied under Naropa, the Bengali master of Tantra, at Nalanda. Milarepa's autobiography recounts how in his youth he practiced black magic in order to take revenge on relatives who deprived his mother of the family inheritance. He later repented and sought Buddhist teaching. After undergoing many tests and ordeals under Marpa, he received initiation from him. He spent the rest of his life meditating in mountain caves and teaching his disciples.

Milarepa

(tool)
A Perl BNF parser generator by Jeffrey Kegler <jeffrey@netcom.com>. Milarepa takes a source grammar written in a mixture of BNF and Perl and generates Perl source, which, when enclosed in a simple wrapper, parses the language described by the grammar. Milarepa is not restricted to LRn grammars, and the parse logic follows directly from the BNF. It handles ambiguous grammars, ambiguous tokens (tokens which were not positively identified by the lexer) and allows the programmer to change the start symbol. The grammar may not be left recursive. The input must be divided into sentences of a finite maximum length. There is no fixed distinction between terminals and non-terminals, that is, a symbol can both match the input AND be on the left hand side of a production. Multiple Marpa grammars are allowed in a single Perl program.
