Rimay Monlam Letter to HHDL

Your Holiness,

      Two years ago, you graciously granted your blessings for the Rimay Monlam, a nonsectarian Tibetan Buddhist Peace Prayer Convocation. We are very pleased to inform Your Holiness that the second annual Rimay Monlam just successfully concluded at Garrison Institute, on the shore of the Hudson River in New York State. Once again, there was no political agenda and no profit motive for this event, which was solely dedicated to sharing pure aspiration prayers for all to receive the blessings and benefit of dharma.

      During this four day program, we held a teachers and scholars meeting to discuss matters of common interest. Dr. David Jackson gave a presentation on the life and teachings of his guru, the great Sakya rimay master Dezhung Rinpoche. Sangyum Kamala (the lifelong consort of Chadral Sanjay Dorje Rinpoche) spoke about tsetar animal liberation practice, and the role of women in dharma. Teachers from all four lineages gave short dharma talks, including Geshe Kunga from the Tibetan Mongolian Buddhist Cultural Center in Indiana, who taught Je Tsongkhapa's Three Principal Aspects of The Path. Popular Hindu kirtan master and recording artist Krishna Das, who also practices Vipassana meditation and studies with Tibetan lamas, led chanting of Tara and Vajra Guru mantras one evening.

      In all, more than 60 people attended in person, including ten Lamas, several translators, and sangha leaders from around the U.S. and other countries. There were, in addition, many sponsors who supported the Monlam and enabled other individuals, both monastic and lay, to attend. A great number of other sangha members joined in the prayers from afar, including from prison, from remote states, and from affiliated sanghas in other countries.June 6, 2012

      For the sake of our precious Tibetan Buddhist tradition in the West and in the world, and of further developing and maintaining friendly collegial relations among teachers, centers and lineages, it is fully our intention to continue to hold Rimay Monlams in the future, annually if possible, and to explore how to do so even more skillfully, and with greater breadth of participation and broader impact. May all beings benefit, and thank you for your continued blessings and support.


Sincerely Offered by Your Devoted Students,

Tulku Sherab Dorje

Lama Surya Das
