Milarepa Day


February 24 / 9:00 AM - February 24 / 6:00 PM

With the guidance of a teacher, Milarepa sought spiritual enlightenment to purify his bad karma. His resulting wisdom attracted many disciples and he eventually became the greatest yogi of the Kagyü Lineage. He taught his students through songs of realization and many spiritual masters who came after him followed his example. A collection of these songs was compiled into a book, entitled The Rain of Wisdom.

This is an annual commemoration of the life and enlightenment of Milarepa.  During this celebration, we chant the songs and stories of realization of our Kagyü lineage forefathers, which are collected in The Rain of Wisdom. These songs were composed spontaneously out of the spiritual understanding of many great Kagyü teachers, including Milarepa. They express deep insight and heartfelt devotion, and their beauty and intensity have made them famous in Tibetan literature.
Please come and join us in this wonderful celebration!
