Milarepa-The Strange Compassionate Other

by Padmavajra (2019)

In this talk, Padmavajra tells us about Aloka's painting of Milarepa sitting above his sun and moon disciples, Gampopa and Rechungpa. He tells us about Milarepa's single-minded devotion to the fiercely compassionate Marpa. He tells us about Milarepa's strange green, transcendental otherness and his training of Gampopa and the turbulent Rechungpa. We hear about Milarepa in old age and the fickleness of the community around him. At the end we hear Milarepa singing through Arthasiddhi: The Song of Meeting and Parting.

Talk given at Padmaloka Retreat Centre in June 2019 during the Men's Great Gathering weekend.
