NEW START TIME! Milarepa Day celebration and practice
March 3 / 8:30 AM - March 3 / 6:00 PM
Join us for a daylong reading of The Rain of Wisdom -- the "songs of realization" (spontaneous dohas, or sung poetry), of the great Tibetan Kagyu teachers from the 12th century to the present. Come for as little or as long as you can.
Acharya Jenny Warwick will open the day's celebration of Milarepa at 8:30am (not 9am). The day will include chanting the Milarepa sadhana, "The Glorious Flame of Wisdom" and all the songs of the lineage teachers in The Rain of Wisdom.
Milarepa depicts the humble beginnings of the man who was to become Tibet's greatest saint in the Kagyü Lineage. Many of his poems of realization, called dohas, are included in The Rain of Wisdom. These dohas are the personal voices of the lineage holders, sharing their experiences of the path, practice, and realization. In chanting them, we attune our minds to theirs, invoking the inspiration of their sanity and devotion.
The Center has some copies of The Rain of Wisdom but, if you have a copy of The Rain of Wisdom, please bring it.
