"Mahasiddha Virupa is one of the famous eighty-four great Indian Masters who attained great realizations in one lifetime, thereby benefiting endless sentient beings through their spiritual attainments. In the unbroken lineage of the Sakyapa Tradition of Tibetan Buddhism he is considered to be the most important guru to have upheld the Buddha Dharma by his majestic powers. He is the original master of the precious Lamdre—the Core Instructions on Non-Duality of the Path and the Result."—excerpted from the foreword by His Holiness the 41st Sakya Trizin
Virupa was given several names throughout his life, and when he was a monk he tried to do his meditation practice as much as he could. But even though he spent many years meditating, he was bothered by disturbing dreams. And when he did as he was instructed to do by his spiritual guidance, it backfired and people often became upset with him. But because of his dedication he developed great spiritual powers which protected him from harm, and even saved his life. When people rejected him he lived in the forest and wore only flowers, and lived an unconventional life, but eventually he found his spiritual home. He saved many animals from sacrifice, and performed miracles.
