7th North American Kagyu Monlam 2016

The 7th North American Kagyu Monlam at Kagyu Thubten Choling Monastery was a great success!

We would like to express our deep gratitude to the Very Venerable Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche for presiding over the Monlam and for being a shining light of inspiration for us all. Our heartfelt thanks to all the lamas who traveled from far away to attend, and to all who helped in any way to make the Monlam and Maitreya Center possible. Thanks to all who participated in the prayers for peace in person, online or in spirit.

May we all give rise to bodhicitta, the pure intention to awaken for the benefit of all beings.
We look forward to the 8th North American Kagyu Monlam to be hosted in 2017 by the Karma Kagyu Association of Canada in Toronto!
