Milarepa Day


February 24 / 8:30 AM - February 24 / 7:00 PM

The actual title of The Rain of Wisdom is The Essence of the Ocean of True Meaning; the subtitle is Bringing the Rain of Wisdom, the Spontaneous Self-Liberation, the Blazing Great Bliss, the Quick Path to Realization of the Supreme Siddhi, the Vajra Songs of the Kagyü Gurus. These songs are the direct 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. This collection was first compiled by Mikyö Dorje, the eighth Karmapa.


Sadhakas should perform the visualizations that are described in the Milarepa sadhana. Ngöndro practitioners should visualize the lineage tree in front, with Milarepa in the center. Other practitioners should not try to visualize at all, but should connect as much as possible with a sense of openness and devotion to the lineage as a whole and to Milarepa in particular.
