Songs of Realization: Sing-A-Long and Social — July 2, 2018

Monday, July 2, 2018
7:00–8:30pm
Nalanda West Dining Room

The buddhas surely do sing and dance.
To sing and dance is surely profound practice.
By practicing profound song and dance,
We reach enlightenment — how amazing!

— Khenpo Tsültrim Gyamtso Rinpoche

Buddhist teachings and spiritual experiences are often communicated through experiential songs. Inspired by Khenpo Tsültrim Gyamtso Rinpoche, who teaches from the songs of Milarepa, Götsangpa, and other lineage masters, Christopher Stagg will lead us in song and connection.

Chris is a Tibetan translator and interpreter for Nalandabodhi and the Nitartha Institute, who has studied at Vajra Vidya Institute in Varanasi, India, and at Namo Buddha in Nepal. He recently translated The Hundred Thousand Songs of Milarepa (Shambhala, 2018) under the direction of Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche. He has degrees in voice performance and music education.

All are welcome! Donations accepted for snacks and refreshments.

 

Presented by Nalandabodhi Seattle. This event is open to the public.
