November 2007: Kagyu Monlam in Bodh Gaya

The 17th Gyalwa Karmapa Trinley Thaye Dorje led the Monlam prayers for world peace and liberation for all sentient beings on Nov 10th through the 14th at the Mahabodhi Temple in Bodh Gaya.
The final two days (13th and 14th) of the event were doubly blessed, as Shamar Rimpoche had arrived and was joining in the morning prayers. On the evening of the 14th Karmapa Thaye Dordje gave a “lung” for the Arya Bhadra Charya prayer of Samantabhadra. The final evening of the event, Shamar Rimpoche gave a “lung” for Jamgon Kongtrul the Great’s commentary on the Seven Points of Mind Training. This coincided with a book that was being distributed written by the Venerable Shangpa Rinpoche on “Lo Jong” practice.
