This year the Ayang Rinpoche 16th Annual Phowa Course will overlap with teachings in Bodhgaya by His Holiness the Dalai Lama from January 5-10. Rinpoche says, “it would be a very good opportunity for the people coming to phowa this year to be able to also receive the blessings and teachings of HH Dalai Lama at the same time.” Rinpoche has changed his daily schedule slightly to accommodate. He advises everyone to make advance bookings for their flight and especially for room reservations in Bodhgaya, due to the large number of people who will be coming at that time.
The Kagyu Monlam Chenmo will be held December 24-31, 2009 in Bodhgaya. His Holiness Gyalwang Karmapa will be giving special pre-monlam teachings for Westerners on Nagarjuna’s Letter to a Friend December 20-22. Click here for more information and the Monlam schedule.
