Event Dates: April 24, 7pm to April 26, 2pm

Studying, contemplating and meditating on the Dharma according to the Tibetan yogi Milarepa.

Please join us as we welcome guest-teacher Dh Kamalashila for an engaging weekend of meditation and Dharma reflection with the works of the great Buddhist master Milarepa!

A message from Kamalashila: “The Life of Milarepa was the first Buddhist book I read. As a twenty year old it made me feel that, somehow, I wanted to be like that. Milarepa’s example inspired me — in a naive way no doubt, but still it influenced some major life choices that eventually gave me important spiritual experiences. So I feel he has been a great teacher for me. And it’s a very appealing idea to spend retreat time with some of you, meditating in his presence as we evoke Milarepa through the impact of his teachings. What Milarepa teaches comes straight from his experience, and the experiences he has — most of them at any rate—we all have as well. He just looks at them more closely. Milarepa’s a very human being who practices incredibly wholeheartedly: it’s infectious and joyous, too.”

The Sustaining price is for people comfortably paying their rent or mortgage, and who can afford the occasional meal out and movie. The Sustaining price level also helps Aryaloka offer lower prices to those who could otherwise not afford to attend. Any payment above this price is a tax-deductible donation. Mid-Level prices are for those who have a regular income and are paying their mortgage or rent. Prices at this level contribute to the range of Aryaloka’s operating costs. The Base-Level price is for those without an income or with an income low enough that making ends meet is a challenge. Those whose circumstances are not included above can call the office to arrange alternate pricing.

* Retreat participants are asked to work together to prepare and clean up after meals and to help with general cleanup at the end of the retreat.
