Rimay Monlam Tibetan Buddhist Peace Prayer Gathering (4)
Venue: Guru Rinpoche House | City: Saugerties, United States
The aspirative prayers of Tibetan Buddhism for World Peace and the preservation of Rimay, the Non-Sectarian Movement of Tibetan Buddhism, follows an established model based on the very traditional program used in the Lung Ngon Monastery, the Monastery of His Holiness Kusum Lingpa, in Gande (Golog, Tibet), being that this Monastery follows the tradition of the great and ancient Monlam festivals.
The non-sectarian Rimay movement of Tibet is an ecumenical tradition started – or more, accurately, revived – one hundred and forty years ago by the great Manjusri (wisdom) Lamas of eastern Tibet renowned as the First Khyentse and First Kongtrul. It arose in order to preserve and help disseminate the many different lineages and practices of all the existant schools of Tibetan Buddhism, many of which were in danger of being lost. These extraordinarily learned and accomplished non-sectarian masters studied under hundreds of teachers and internalized the precious and profound Three Yana teachings, then taught and also compiled the bulk of them into voluminous compendiums, vast scriptural compilations.
In particular, the `Rimay Monlam´ was founded by Hungkar Dorje Rinpoche and Tulku Sherdor in 2007 at Blazing Wisdom Institute in New York, and has been held in the eastern U.S. every year since, until 2016 when the program was expanded to Europe. For the past several years, each year has dedicated the program to a particular Rimay master from one of the major traditions of Tibetan Buddhism, including His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Dezhung Rinpoche, and Kalu Rinpoche. This special 10th year will be dedicated to His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama.
This Monlam, or aspirative prayers, are of enormous importance and vital in our present days, not only in the establishment of causes and conditions for world peace, either in troubled times by sectarianism and its adverse results for the Dharma and for society in general. This is an opportunity to accumulate merit and auspicious circumstances for the preservation and expansion of Rimay, or non-sectarian attitude, so central to the cause of world peace.
