Milarepa Day


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

During this day-long celebration of the life of Milarepa, we will read the entirety of The Rain of Wisdom, a collection of devotional songs and stories. This day celebrates the enlightenment and life example of Milarepa by reading the devotional songs of the Kagyu lineage ancestors in The Rain of Wisdom. 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 Mikyo Dorje, the eighth Karmapa and translated into English under the direction of the Vidyadhara Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. If you have a copy of The Rain of Wisdom, please bring it with you! Donations to the Center are gratefully accepted.
