2016 North American Kagyu Monlam

The Kagyu Thubten Choling Monastery and Retreat Center invited our members and friends from Columbus KTC to attend the 17th Annual North American Kagyu Monlam, July 6-10, 2016 in Wappingers Falls, New York.

As His Holiness Karmapa wrote: “Central to Monlam – what gives it power and plants the seeds of future results – is the recitation of aspirations and prayers…May these words and of love and compassion blend with innate goodness of every being and coalesce into one powerful force.”

This five day prayer festival for world peace will be held in Kagyu Thubten Choling Monastery’s newly completed Maitreya Center. Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche will preside over the offering of aspiration prayers and will also give teachings and empowerments.

Registration is required and will open on March 1. Information will be made available concerning hotels and lodging in the area. You can check for the launch of registration at www.kagyumonlamny.org. Please register as early as possible as space is limited.
