Shangpa Monlams – August 11 – 19, 2018

Buddha’s teaching shows the authentic path
The source of true happiness and genuine success,
Master, learned and realized in the path of enlightenment,
Unmatched in the past, the present and the future,
Prodigious Incarnation of the Five Deities,
Khyungpo Neljor, I bow to your feet.

The Mônlam are a perfect example of the activity of Kalu Rinpoche. In his great kindness, he made it his daily practice for the good of all sentient beings. Later, he regularly practiced them together with his sangha. Finally, in 1983, he established the practice of holding the Shangpa Mônlam in Bodhgaya every year.

Shangpa Monlams 2018

For 2018, I invite you for eight days of intensive practice together.  I foresee that our gathering will be very auspicious for our community and for each of us. We will practice the Mönlam as well as the Tara and Six Armed Mahakala rituals.
