Due to the inspiration and blessings of His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, the 13th Taiwan Kagyu Monlam was successfully completed at the Chieftain Youth Activity Center in Taipei. This year’s principal organizer was Khenchen Tsulnam Rinpoche and his three Palriling Dharma Centers of Taiwan. They invited Khenchen Lodro Donyo Rinpoche of Bokar Monastery to preside over the Monlam. Khenchen Rinpoche graciously accepted the invitation and bestowed teachings each morning on glorious Atisha’s Lamp of the Path to Enlightenment. His joy in presenting the Dharma and his depth of learning were deeply appreciated by all.
The preparations by Khenchen Tsulnam Rinpoche and his three Palriling centers in Taiwan have been wonderful, and the event ran very smoothly. Lama Karma Chodrak—the Chief Executiveer of Kagyu Monlam International was present for the entire three days and provided guidance and support. Many participants commented on how touched they were by this year’s Monlam experience. The prayer festival was attended by over 1,200 participants from fourteen different countries of the East and West.
The virtue of the Taiwan Kagyu Monlam is dedicated to the present and future benefit of all beings, the flourishing of the Buddhadharma, and the long life of His Holiness the Gyalwang Karmapa and all genuine masters.
