Join the Kagyu Monlam live-stream from Bodh Gaya

Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche, and Beru Khyentse Rinpoche at the Kagyu Monlam in Bodh Gaya, December 2017

The Kagyu Monlam, one of the most important events in the Buddhist calendar, takes place from 15–21 December 2019. Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, together with thousands of students, monks, nuns and other venerables from India and around the world, make aspiration prayers for the benefit of all sentient beings.

There will be daily live streams from the afternoon sessions at Bodh Gaya. You can watch the live stream below, on this page, starting from 15 December or on Karmapa’s official Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/thekarmapa 

The Tibetan word Mon-lam can be translated as ‘Path of Aspiration’, but how does one make an aspiration prayer?

In this powerful and practical teaching, Karmapa shares how to make aspirations – wholeheartedly, and without any worry or expectations.
