Lara Braitstein & Tsony. Poetry in Practice, Poetry as Practice Part 2
February 28, 2016 - March 6, 2016
Poetry in Practice, Poetry as Practice
From the time of the Buddha Shakyamuni to the present day, in every culture that has adopted Buddhism, accomplished masters have expressed their paths and realizations through poetry. Through closely reading inspiring translations of the work of Buddhist poets such as Ashvaghosha, Saraha, Milarepa, and others, Professor Lara Braitstein will lead us in exploring some of the many styles and goals of expressing the hardships of the path and the bliss of awakening. Lama Tsony’s meditation program will be based on and drawn from the Songs of Realization of Gendun Rinpoche.
