One of the most beloved stories of the Tibetan people and a great literary example of the contemplative life, Tsangnyön Heruka’s The Life of Milarepa, a biography and a dramatic tale from a culture now in crisis, can be read on several levels. A personal and moving introduction to Tibetan Buddhism, it is also a detailed guide to the search for liberation. It presents a quest for purification and buddha-hood in a single lifetime, tracing the path of a great sinner who became a great saint. It is also a powerfully evocative narrative, full of magic, miracles, suspense, and humor, while reflecting the religious and social life of medieval Tibet.

Registration is required by calling 404-727-6118. Fee, which includes the book: $20 for Carlos Museum members; $35 for non-members.
