Abstract/Description
'The hunting dog and his double in the Tibetan dance drama 'Milarepa' or 'devil dance'. One day when Milarepa, an eleventh-century Lamaistic saint, was chanting as he sat alone in a forest clearing …Then came the dog and, won by the sweetness of the holy voice, sat down on the other side, instead of pouncing on the deer.'
