27th Kagyu Monlam, Bodhgaya, Dec 20 2009 till Jan 1 2010

During the 27th Kagyu Monlam the Gyalwang Karmapa will complete the
transmission of the "Life of Milarepa", so the theme of this year's
Monlam will be "Remembering the Kindness of the Lineage Masters,
especially Milarepa". To reflect this, there will be a programme of
special events.

Tuesday, 29th December, 2009 at 7.00 PM, Tergar Monastery: The
Gyalwang Karmapa will lead the Tsog (Ganachakra) Offering of the Guru
Yoga of Milarepa, composed by the First Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche.
This puja is open to both ordained and lay people, but you must have
completed the Drubgyu Four Ngondro (Preliminary Practices) in order to
attend. You will need to bring your own copy of the text.

Friday, 1st January, 2010 at 11.00AM near Tergar Monastery: There will
be a special celebratory lunch offering to the sanghas of those
monasteries and nunneries which were formally invited to attend Kagyu
Monlam. In order to recall the hardships Milarepa underwent, nettle
soup will be served as part of the meal.

Friday, 1st January, 2010 at 7.00PM near Tergar Monastery: There will
be a performance of a drama in six acts, based on Milarepa's life,
written especially by the Gyalwang Karmapa. There will also be various
presentations of monastic arts and culture. Everyone is invited to
this special performance and we hope you will enjoy it.
