A drop of water which falls into a great ocean will neither be
exhausted nor cease to exist until the end of the universe.
Likewise, a virtuous root dedicated toward attaining enlightenment
will neither be exhausted nor cease to exist until you reach perfect enlightenment.

The Sutra spoken by Noble Inexhaustible Intelligence

Sharing a vast ocean of merit...       

Over 5,000 monks and nuns come to Bodhgaya each year to participate in the Monlam. The Kagyu Monlam organization pays for their transportation, food, and lodging and makes offerings to them. In addition it funds charitable programs such as Medical Camp and Animal Medical Camp. All of these require significant resources. For this reason, the Friends of Kagyu Monlam was created to encourage people to support these virtuous activities.

“Being a Friend of Kagyu Monlam is like being a member of a loving family.”

                              ~  H.H. the 17th Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje
