(Online) Celebrating Milarepa’s Songs of Realization

About Milarepa Day

Lineage holders share their teachings via “dohas” or songs of their own struggles and realization. These songs  have inspired meditators for thousands of years. They are still sung and studied now, at this time, because they point us to a valid path of realization.

Milarepa Day is one of the annual celebrations of our community, held on the full moon following Shambhala Day (or close to it). This is our opportunity to come together and join our voices in union with others who, like Milarepa, have struggled with disillusionment, worked with renunciation and searched for a path and a teacher.

What to Expect

This day of chanting the songs of Milarepa provides an opportunity to sink into the dharma and let the words of our lineage holders be our only speech for a day. By reading the songs and stories in The Rain of Wisdom we are connecting to the practice of devotion, courage and insight.

We start and end the day with a Guru Yoga practice of Milarepa. If you are practicing at home or in person with us — let this be a day of silence so that the voices of the gurus can penetrate our usual chatter.

It is a full day that you can drop in or out of as you wish.

With the energy of the moon and the coming together of whole communities of Buddhist practitioners, Milarepa Day can be a powerful practice event. May it benefit all beings.

Who Should Attend

Milarepa Day is easy and appropriate for beginners and experienced meditators alike. All are welcome!
