Milarepa, His Disciples, and the Yogic Tradition: An afternoon of songs & stories

Milarepa is the most well-known practitioner of the yogic tradition in Tibet’s history, attaining the greatest potential of a human in a single lifetime. Though he lived over 1,000 years ago, his life example and the methods he employed on his path to awakening are still relevant to us today.

On Saturday, March 17th from 2:00 – 5:00 pm, Nalandabodhi teacher Christopher Stagg will discuss the relevance of Milarepa’s life through his narrative and songs. In particular, Chris will explore Milarepa’s encounters with male and female disciples as presented in The Hundred Thousand Songs of Milarepa. Please join us to hear Chris teach on Milarepa’s life and to learn some Milarepa songs!

Chris is an accomplished translator of Tibetan teachings as well as a professional musician and music teacher. Several copies of Chris’s recent translation, The Hundred Thousand Songs of Milarepa (Shambhala, 2018), will be available for purchase and for signing by Chris.

Suggested Donation: $20–no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

NOTE: To RSVP or if you have any questions please send an email to philadelphia@nalandabodhi.org.
