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.
