North American Kagyu Monlam

The Seventh Annual North American Kagyu Monlam was held July 6 – 10 at the Kagyu Thubten Choling Monastery in Wappingers Falls, New York.   Dorje Palmo journeyed to Wappingers Falls to represent the Yongey Buddhist Center and participate in the prayer festival held in KTC’s newly completed Maitreya Center.  Also attending were members of the New York Branch of the Yongey Buddhist Center.

Our precious guru, the Very Venerable Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, presided over the offering of aspiration prayers and gave teachings and empowerment.  During the Saturday session, Dorje Palmo presented offerings on behalf of the Yongey Buddhist Center.  The offerings were distributed to all the monastics in attendance.   The five-day Monlam prayer festival was well attended and very successful.
