This course is oriented toward beginners who have little knowledge of Tibetan but would like to gain some familiarity with the language and how it is translated into English. It covers the alphabet and pronunciation. Students learn to chant a few of the songs of Milarepa and at the same time investigate their meaning in both Tibetan and in English. By looking into the Tibetan behind the English, students can expect to gain a richer understanding of the songs composed by one of Tibet’s great masters.
