Kagyu Monlam 2020 schedule and live stream

December 15, 2020

The Kagyu Monlam takes place from 16–22 December 2020.

Listen to the Kagyu Monlam on the live stream page on karmapa.org.

Following the postponement of our annual gathering at Bodh Gaya due to the ongoing pandemic, Monlams will be safely held in various monasteries across India and Nepal, by about a thousand monks and nuns.

You are invited to join a live audio stream of the Monlam being held in Rumtek, which will also include a welcome address by Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa.

As Karmapa says in his invitation to join the live stream,

I feel that we are very fortunate to have the necessary technology to allow us to practice together, and I will be joining the aspiration prayers along with all of you around the world.

How can I listen to the live stream?
