What makes this really enjoyable is the ability to listen to the umdze and the monks etc through the upper window on the player, and if you click the English below, you can then adjust the English to just blend over the Tibetan... this is really
amazing, been watching off and on since you put this link here, thanxs for the link, got to see the Great Gingchen Dance the other night which featured both monks and nuns doing the ritual dance at the same time (historical), got to hear HH Karmapa teach live, and have enjoyed other parts of this on and off for many hours. The fact this is live streaming from India and does not cut in and out very much at all is pretty amazing.

Wonderful stuff, thanx again Cone for linking folks up with this Monlam.

:thumbsup:

Gyaltsab Rinpoche and Jamgon Rinpoche did attend the Monlam, too. Does anybody know why Situ Rinpoche did not attend the Monlam? He is rarely seen together with them.

Wu Ming-
It's political. Let's just leave it at that, shall we? That's a can of worms that we shouldn't open.

Last night's ceremony was interesting--the monks who were wearing masks and various colored robes--that was a first. I'm trying to get more info about that.......will let you all know what I find out.

OK, no problem. I just wondered.

That would certainly be great. Looking forward to learn more about it.

Looks like today is the day dedicated to those who have passed....they're doing prayers for Karma Chagme Rinpoche and Akong Rinpoche....
