17th Gyalwa Karmapa"Buddhism is a way of life through which we develop the qualities of our mind.
This way of life is very unusual, as it is a means to attain happiness without harming others.

THE 17th GYALWA KARMAPA

 

 FR [Français ici >] |  ES [Espagnol aquí >] |
 

Milarepa, thangka par le Xe Karmapa.

 


Milarepa’s guru yoga will take place on
Thursday, May 7—day of the full moon— at 4:30pm (CEST) and will be available via streaming so that all who wish can follow the ritual from home.

This ritual is open to all and will last roughly an hour. To connect for the live video, see the instructions for using Zoom or connect via youtube's dhagpo channel.

Milarepa (1010–1123 CE) was a saint, poet, and hermit, and a prime example of an individual who realized enlightenment “in a single body and a single life” by devoting himself to the path and to the benefit of others. Practicing his guru yoga (union with enlightened mind) invokes the spiritual influence of the lineage and opens our minds to its own wealth.

Several options are available for following this practice.

For those who know the practice and have received explanations of the instructions for the ritual:

If you wish, you can prepare the necessary items and offerings at home.

  • Place a representation of Milarepa on the altar.
  • Make an offering torma to dispel obstacles (guektor) if you can.
  • Prepare some tsok offerings.

You can also simply follow the ritual without special preparation.

For those who have not received instructions on this practice:

  • You can simply listen to the ritual from home. There is no need to read the text or to prepare offerings.)

We look forward to joining you for this practice.
