Recorded by Jon Ransohoff and Lyndon Comstock at Surmang in August, these are some of the same songs we chant on Milarepa Day throughout the Shambhala community. However, for most people this set provides a first opportunity to hear the songs as they are recited in Tibet. To make it easy to follow along in The Rain of Wisdom, the liner notes for the set provide page references for each song

Five of the songs are also included on the DVD, which offers four short videos about Surmang Dutsi Til:                

  • An Introduction to Surmang Dutsi Til 
  • Opening Day of the Surmang Shedra Children’s Program 
  • A Brief Tour of the Surmang Shedra 
  • Chokyi Senge Trungpa XII Rinpoche
