5th Annual drikung kagyu monlam

The 5th Annual U.S. Drikung Kagyu Monlam coincides with and celebrates the anniversary of Lord Jigten Sumgon’s parinirvana. From Saturday June 9th, through Sunday June 10th H.E. Garchen Rinpoche will celebrate this event with us and offer ripening empowerment and liberating instructions on the profound Five-fold Path of Mahamudra, and Lord Jigten Sumgon’s spiritual songs about the Five-fold Path.

A monlam (great prayer festival) is a gathering of practitioners offering communal prayers to help overcome obstacles to peace and generate the conditions for all beings to live in harmony. The Drikung Kagyu community initiated the U.S. monlam four years ago and has continued the event annually in June to pray for wisdom and compassion to permeate all sentient beings.

Join us June 9 and 10, 2018, at the Tibetan Assembly Hall, 5200 Huntington Ave., Richmond, California, for this profound teaching and prayer event.
