Program for Kagyu Monlam 2012 in Bodhgaya

We are pleased to announce that the programme for this year’s Kagyu Monlam, which will take place between December 14 and 20, has been finalized. During his teaching sessions His Holiness Karmapa will comment on the great bodhisattva Samantabhadra’s aspiration prayer for excellent conduct, which is the main prayer accumulated during the Kagyu Monlam. Making such aspirations in the sacred place of Bodhgaya where the historical Buddha Shakyamuni attained enlightenment, in the presence of realised bodhisattvas, accumulates immense merit and helps to pacify both natural and man-made disasters and obstacles. It benefits not only the practitioners taking part in the Monlam but all those connected to them, and ultimately all sentient beings.
