Please join the Tsadra Foundation on Thursday, March 2nd at 6pm to celebrate the Year of the Fire Bird and Holly Gayley's new book, Love Letters from Golok: A Tantric Couple in Modern Tibet.

In the gathering, we'll explore passages from the courtship and correspondence between the contemporary tantric couple, Namtrul Rinpoche and Khandro Tāre Lhamo (featured in image to the left). Holly Gayley of CU Boulder will highlight the stylistic features in their letters, composed almost entirely in verse, and hone in on the playful slippage in the term for memory (dran pa), which allowed the couple to synthesize their prophetic vocation as tertöns, or treasure-revealers, with the growing affection of their personal bond.

The evening will start with plenty of time for momos and mingling!

The Tsadra Foundation's Boulder Research Library is located at 2930 Island Drive, Boulder, CO 80301.
