MILA THE MAGICIAN tells the adventures of a young man, Mila, who leaves home to learn black magic. After overcoming many difficulties, he becomes a powerful sorcerer. An adventure story; it is also a tale of revenge, as it delves into the psychology and ramifications of vengeance.


Mila is motivated by the desire to take revenge against his evil uncle and aunt, who have robbed him of his inheritance and left his mother and sister destitute. But successful revenge does not make Mila happy. He is deeply remorseful as he has harmed many innocent people. In penitence, he turns to Buddhism and eventually, he becomes a great saint.


This tale of magic is not completely imaginary; it follows the traditional beliefs and folklore of Tibet. The narration has a Buddhist perspective; loosely based on the early life of the great Tibetan saint Milarepa (13th C. AD). It is not a biography; but an entertaining story set in Tibet, with its beautiful scenery and rich culture.


This bilingual book is fascinating. … I am happy…to recommend it. —Professor YU Kuang Chung, Kaohsiung, Taiwan
