Songs of Barway Dorje

Commentary and instruction by Bardor Tulku Rinpoche
Translation by Lama Yeshe Gyamtso
Cost of weekend: $120

The Treasury of Eloquence is a compilation of the songs of realization of Terchen Barway Dorje (1836-1918). Like the well-known songs of Milarepa, they serve as a source of inspiration and guidance to contemporary practitioners. Though most of the songs were spontaneously composed for a particular disciple, their direct advice unmistakably points out the way to encounter the Buddha nature that is common to all. Made up of many pithy songs, longer pieces, guru yoga compositions, and prayers of aspiration and supplication, the Treasury of Eloquence contains a wide range of teachings and instructions that can be put to immediate use. Bardor Tulku Rinpoche will go through all the songs in the Treasury of Eloquence and give definitive commentary on their profound meaning.

From Bardor Tulku Rinpoche

Dear Sangha Members and Friends,

Tashi delek! In the past few months there have been many exciting developments at KPL. The goals we set at the beginning of the summer for the second floor have been and continue to be met. The sprinkler system has been installed and the insulation will be completed by the end of the month. Once the insulation is finished, work can begin on the radiant floor heating. We are so pleased with the progress on the second floor and greatly appreciate the dedicated efforts of our volunteers.

Since my health has improved, I have begun a teaching series on Treasury of Eloquence: The Songs of Barway Dorje. Through these teachings I am able to provide further detail and commentary on the First Barway Dorje's collection of songs and instructions. It is my hope that students will enjoy and learn much from this series of teachings.

Thank you for your continued support of KPL and all our activities.

Yours in the Dharma,

Bardor Tulku Rinpoche
