Mitra Karl Teaching in Vancouver, BC on Songs of Realization by Female Mahasiddhas

Friday, February 7 to Sunday, February 9, 2020

Many Buddhists are familiar with the life story and songs of realization of the great Tibetan yogi, Milarepa. The songs by his Indian predecessors are less well known but equally profound and inspiring.

But even less known are the life stories and songs of their numerous female counterparts. Many such songs were uttered spontaneously, and many betray unconventional if not outrageous thinking and conduct.

How To Take Crisis As An Opportunity By Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche

You know, we usually say, “Oh, it’s good because we learn from these things.” And that’s great, of course. But it’s not just that we learn from difficult experiences. It’s that when disaster strikes, suddenly there’s an open space in which we can create something new. Through the very process of dealing with that crisis, we can improve –– we can work with our mind.
