The Great Monlam-Prayer-Festival

This year will be the 22nd Great Monlam-Prayer-Festival in Rabten Choeling.

The days start with the reading of Jataka stories, followed by three prayer sessions and debate of the monks. The events are concluded with an auspicious Buddha-Maitreya-Procession.

In Tibet and India the festival was held from the 5th till the 17th day of the first lunar month and was the most important gathering of the monasteries. It was assisted by the lay community with extensive offerings for the accumulation of merit.

These intensive prayers are dedicated for the benefit of all beings and for peace and harmony in the world.
