Songs of Boundless Freedom: 
The Doha Tradition of the Indian Mahāsiddhas


Teachings by Mitra Karl Brunnhölzl 
September 27-29

Every Tibetan Buddhist knows the life story and the songs of realization of the great Tibetan yogi Milarepa. The many songs of awakening by his Indian predecessors, most famously the eighty-four mahāsiddhas, are much less known but equally profound, beautiful, and inspiring.

During this weekend, we will explore the life stories of some well-known and some not so well-known mahāsiddhas (such as Saraha, Śavaripa, Niguma, Sukhasiddhi, Tilopa, and Maitrīpa) and sing a selection of their songs.

$85 for the weekend; $25 for Friday night only (cash or cheque). No one turned away.

DPR-heart-calligraphyOpen Heart Circle

Tuesday Sept. 17, 7:00-8:30pm

The Open Heart Circle is an adapted Mahayana practice of sending and taking for all sentient beings who are ill or dying, or who have recently died. We offer prayers for people who have recently died or are ill through chanting and tonglen practice.

This practice helps us to develop an awareness of impermanence in daily life while awakening our innate loving kindness for ourselves and others. It helps break through the barrier of “me and mine” and reminds us that sickness, death and dying are universal conditions. It offers a vehicle to bring illness and sorrow to the path and to develop compassion for both our own suffering and the suffering of others. Open to all.
