Description:
In this half-day program, Jan Willis will guide us in exploring the meaning and functioning of “liberation life stories” (rNam thar) in the Tibetan Tantric tradition by focusing on the stories of two well-known tantric siddhas, practitioners who gained enlightenment in one lifetime, Naropa and Milarepa. What are rNam thar, and how do they work? How should we read them? Can we discern common patterns in the lives of those who attained enlightenment in one lifetime? What do these two rNam thar, read in tandem, teach us about the Buddhist Path?
