26-28 August 2022 (3 days)
Kagyu Monlam Poland is a part of an international Kagyu Monlam led under the guidance of His Holiness the 17th Gjalwang Karmapa. International Kagyu Monlam Committee annually delegates Umdze to lead the prayers as well as monks to prepare tormas. Every year one Rinpoche from Karma Kagyu tradition is invited to lead Kagyu Monlam as a main Lama. In Grabnik it was two times Drubwang Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche, two times Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche and six times Venerable Sangter Rinpoche. Khenpos and Lamas from Benchen Monastery in Nepal and European lamas take part in the prayers as well.
This year, similar as in the two previous years, the visit of venerable guests from Asia is not possible yet. Nevertheless we will conduct Monlam this year, following the recommendation of His Eminence Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche, who advised us to continue yearly practise of Kagyu Monlam, even if there would be a small assembly.
The 13th Kagyu Monlam will be led by Lama Rinchen.
