Mahasiddha BabehepaBabhahi / Bapabhati (ch las ‘o mo len): “The Man Who Gets Milk from Water

Babhahi was from Dhanjura of the Ksatriya caste, who was attracted to all the advantages of kingship. One day, a yogin came to ask for alms, so the ksatriya offered him food and drinks, and then took faith and asked for the Dharma.

The yogin said, “Faith is the root of the entire Dharma. The guru is the root of all siddhi.” Then gave him the initiation which transfers spiritual power and instructions on the nadis, prana, and bindu.

Taking the instructions into his mind, he purified the stains obstructing his vision and in 12 years, he obtained siddhi. He benefitted many living beings from his training, saying:


As the king of geese

Separates milk from water,

The instructions of a revered guru

Draw out the elixir of enlightenment.

He then went to the realm of the Dakas in this very body.
