Tibet remained a Dharma stronghold for 1,400 years before facing modern disruption and genocide in the twentieth century. Our founder, Tarthang Tulku is a Nyingma master whose wish to revitalize Bodh Gaya and bring Nyingma masters in exile together has yielded monumental and unbelievable results, in part through the blossoming of this annual ceremony and gathering.

Why is the Monlam (World Peace Ceremony) an important opportunity for spiritual renewal and affirmation of Tibet’s endangered wisdom tradition, as well as a vehicle for cultural preservation? What have been the effects of the offerings, which include sacred texts, art, prayer wheels and more, on Bodh Gaya, Dharma studies and practice for the Tibetan community in exile? How can we activate the energy of sacred sites, and how does pilgrimage figure in the arc of transmission today?

This event is part of Bodh Gaya Awakening, a day of talks and film.
