This summer, hundreds of monks and lay people will gather at Karma Triyana Dharmachakra (KTD) on Overlook Mountain above the artist village of Woodstock, N.Y., to participate in the North American Kagyu Monlam, a five day festival of prayers for world peace. This historic event, an extension of the annual Kagyu Monlam Chenmo in Bodhgaya, India, will be the first of an annual tradition to be held at sacred places across the U.S. and Canada.
“Kagyu Monlam is an avenue whereby we can spread, at times of great need, the genuine spirit of love and compassion to all the people of the world, like a great ripple, first in Bodhgaya, then in Bihar, and so on. As we continuously offer these prayers for world peace, it is our intention and our wish that peace and happiness extend to all.” — His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa
Your prayers and aspirations will help spread the spirit of compassion and love, supporting the mission of His Holiness and other great masters. Highlights of the event include daily teachings by the Very Ven. Thrangu Rinpoche and an Akshobhya Empowerment. The complete daily schedule of events, personally composed by His Holiness the Karmapa, can be viewed at https://www.kagyu.org/monlam/schedule.php
The many recreational opportunities of the Catskill Mountains make this an ideal location to bring the family. Whether you come for one day or for the entire program, your participation will support His Holiness’s efforts to promote world peace and harmony.
With the Monlam little over a month away, we encourage you to register as soon as possible, preferably by June 21, so that we can get your admission badge to you in time, and to enable us to plan properly for the event.
