Kagyu Monlam

The International Kagyu Monlam is a festive prayer ceremony dedicated to increasing world peace and harmony. It is held each year at the Great Stupa under the Maha Bodhi Tree by the Vajra Seat, where the Buddha attained enlightenment. Monlam, which means Aspiration in Tibetan, is held during the 8th-15th days of the 11th month of the Tibetan calendar. In 1983 Kyabje Dorje Chang Kalu Rinpoche re-established the tradition, which now hosts over six thousand ordained monks and nuns and as many as ten thousand pilgrims.
His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, Orgyen Trinle Dorje, has presided over the International Kagyu Monlam since 2001. For more information see www.kagyumonlam.org
