Postby phantom59 » Thu Jun 17, 2010 9:52 am

The 28th Kagyu Monlam will be held from 15th – 22nd December 2010 in Bodh Gaya.

The 17th Gyalwang Karmapa and other high Rinpoches will preside over the assembly of thousands of monks, nuns and lay devotees who will pray for the well-being of the world and that all sentient beings may be touched by the wisdom, compassion and power of the buddhas and bodhisattvas.

Gyalwang Karmapa will give The Public Teaching on The Aspiration Prayer of Samantabhadra. His Holiness will give oral instructions on different meditations, and will give a commentary each day on one of the specific prayers for that day.

In addition there will be different prayers recited for the well-being of Tibet.

The Medicine Buddha Ritual, Tara and Guru Rinpoche prayers and so forth will be recited for the benefit of the living, and the Akshobhya Ritual and Fire Ritual will be offered for those who have passed away. For the benefit of both the living and the deceased, there will be a complete reading of the Kangyur, the Sixteen Arhats Ritual, the Alms Procession, the Sutric tradition Guru Puja with distribution of tsog, and the Lamp Prayer.
