The term Monlam means the path of aspiration and is a form of prayer. Here, it refers to the tradition of Monlam Chenmo, the great prayer gathering. The communal prayers, offered with strong faith and devotion, help to overcome obstacles to peace and generate conducive conditions for everyone to live in harmony.
This year, Sakya Monastery and the Sakya Monlam Committee are hosting the 3rd Annual North American Sakya World Peace Monlam. Dagmola gives us insight about the history and significance of this important annual prayer festival.
