Announcement - Second Annual Arya Kshema Winter Dharma Gathering

8th – 24th January, 2015

The Second Arya Kshema Winter Dharma Gathering will be held from 8th – 24th January, 2015 at Tergar Monastery, in Bodhgaya.

Nuns representing different Kagyu nunneries will gather together to debate on

“Beginning and Intermediate Logic” from the Collected Topics.

Teachings  begun last year on The Jewel Ornament of Liberation by Gampopa will be continued.

This is the second year of this important Winter Gathering for nuns, which was established by the 17th Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje to support and encourage nuns. His vision is to empower nuns through a rigorous education, and to give them the same educational and practice opportunities accorded traditionally to monks.

As his Holiness states:  “Nuns require the full practice of the three trainings in order to uphold the Buddhadharma properly.”
