ANNOUNCEMENT THE 25TH GREAT SAKYA MONLAM
This is to notify all the Monasteries, Shedras, members and centres following the path of the Great Compassionate Sakya school of Tibetan Buddhism across the globe about the 25th Great Sakya Monlam. Since its inception, the Great Sakya Monlam has successfully held the Universal Peace Prayer for 24 consecutive times in Lumbini, the birthplace of Lord Buddha Shakyamuni. Now the Great Monlam is entering its 25th year and there has been a unanimous decision to hold the next Monlam at the same place in Lumbini, starting from 25 December 2016 until 3 January 2017. As the Monlam entered the 25th year of its existence, there will be a Silver Jubilee Celebration to mark this glorious event. There will also be regular prayers under the auspicious presence of the great masters and most importantly, it will be led by His Holiness the 41st Sakya Trizin who has kindly accepted the invitation at the behest of the Organising Committee.
We are happy that we will be extending our invitation for this Great Monlam to many
important figures. At the same time, we would like to invite all the respected Khenpos,
Tulkus, dear Sanghas and also the faithful disciples who live far and near.
From the Office of Sakya Monlam Organising Committee
