Milarepa Day

Shambhala has a tradition of getting together once a year and chanting the songs of the lineage. This is called Milarepa Day because we start and end the day with the Guru Yoga practice of Milarepa. Milarepa was a teacher famed for not only their wisdom but also the fact that their instructions were sung in a melodic and pleasing way.

The tradition of ‘singing’ realisation is sometimes called Vajra Doha. The founder of Shambhala, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, was trained in doha and often composed these types of poems.

The Belle Cot meditation group will be doing an abbreviated Milarepa Day from 1 – 2 pm Sunday Feb 25.

Please join us, no experience necessary (singing or meditating)
