Milarepa Day

8:30 am —approx. 8:30 pm

During this day-long celebration of the life of Milarepa, we will chant the entirety of The Rain of Wisdom, a collection of devotional songs and stories. 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.

Feel free to join in for the morning or the afternoon, or even just for one session. Please arrive in time to enter and leave the shrine room only during the scheduled break periods, not during chanting.

If you have a copy of The Rain of Wisdom, please bring it with you! The Center has some copies that can be shared.

Please bring your own lunch. We will provide Chai and other beverages. RSVP requested.     Program is free; donations happily accepted.

For questions, to RSVP, and if you want to offer your help, please contact Doraine at [email protected] or text 859-397-5360.
