Uh...Catmoon?

This is regarding next year's schedule. I think the post is timely.

Perhaps you were referring to the fact that this year's Monlam wasn't posted until after the fact?

BOINK!

I seem to have simply assumed the date was 2010. Doh.

So as near as I can make out, a monlam consists mainly of praying. Now I'm wondering, is it a drop-in affair, or are people expected to spend the whole five days there like a retreat? It is public?

Well...I can't answer your questions for certain. But I think that if you wish to participate actively, --have a seat, recite the prayers, etc.--you need to pre-register.
I'm sure there are observers who come and go daily, as well.

The prayers recited at the Monlam change daily, and yearly, but in general there are a variety of aspiration and dedication prayers that get recited multiple times. You can find the Kagyu Monlam book for sale at Snow Lion, at KTD's bookstore, and likely at other places that have a good selection of Dharma books.

I have not attended a Kagyu Monlam, but know people who have, both in India and here in Woodstock this year.
