The Life and Teachings of Milarepa
Becoming familiar with the spiritual biographies of the Kagyu Lineage Masters is a source of great inspiration and show us that whatever our circumstances or lifestyle, we can also practice these teachings and tame our mind.
Milarepa is one of the greatest yogis to have lived in Tibet, and his lifestory is known through his many Dohas, or spiritual songs of realisation, as can be found in the books, The Life of Milarepa, or the Hundred Thousand Songs of Milarepa. His lifestory in particular provides us with encouragement and inspiration to continue when we ourselves encounter difficulties on our spiritual path.
Lama Zangmo will go through some of these teachings which point out the essential qualities needed for a practitioner on the path of liberation.
Suitable for anyone who wishes to learn more about the Kagyu Lineage and the teachings of Milarepa.
This is a weekly course taking place every Thursday evening for 4 weeks from 19.00 and 20.30 and it is a requirement to commit to attend all four classes. Unless you are able to attend all the classes, we ask you not to book for the course.
During the annual visit of Choje Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche, the Abott of Kagyu Samye Ling monastery, Ani Lhamo his assistant will be giving a talk on Milarepa and there will also be a Milarepa Tsok puja both taking place on Sunday the 7th of July.

Traditionally the Buddhist teachings are given freely because they are considered priceless and those receiving the teachings practice generosity, or Dana, by making monetary offerings for the centre. This generosity is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is an offering given, freely from the heart, in appreciation for receiving the precious instructions that can help better one’s life and the lives of others.
Making a donation directly helps to provide all the necessary conditions for the study and practice of meditation and Buddhism, bringing teachers to teach and maintaining a spiritual community as well as contributing to the considerable expenses that are involved in running a centre. We are grateful for your support and hope to continue to provide a space of peace and calm dedicated to promoting world peace and good health of body and mind.
