Songs of Milarepa

2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Milarepa, His Disciples, and the Yogic Tradition

A Weekend Program, April 6th – 8th


Nalandabodhi Boulder is pleased to host Christopher Stagg for a weekend of talks and songs from a new translation of The Hundred Thousand Songs of Milarepa.  Shambhala Publications has just published Chris’ translation of the songs.  We’ll have a book signing on Friday night as part of the weekend.

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. In this weekend program, 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.  And, no doubt, we will have a lot of singing during the weekend!

Friday, April 6, 7:00 to 9:00
Saturday, April 7, 10:00 to 12:00 and 2:00 to 4:00
Sunday, April 8, 2:00 to 4:00
Location:  Nalandabodhi Boulder, 100 Arapahoe Ave, Suite 6, Boulder CO
