March 7th

    Room: Off Site

    The Portland Shambhala Center is partnering with Kagyu Changchub Chuling (KCC: https://kcc.org, 4936 NE Skidmore), under the direction of their new resident Lama, Lama Eric Triebelhorn, to celebrate Milarepa Day together by chanting the The Rain of Wisdom on Saturday, March 7th, starting at 8 am, and ending around 6 pm.

    The Kagyu and Nyingma lineages are the ground from which the Shambhala teachings arose. The realization songs of the Kagyu gurus are collected in this book which was translated by the Vidyadhara Chögyam Trungpa and the Nalanda Translation Committee. The entire book is chanted aloud as a joyous energetic group practice on the 14th Day of the first lunar month, which we call Milarepa Day.
