Kagyu Monlam Hosts Children for Republic Day Celebration



Monlam Pavilion,
26 January, 2015



The children live in the Elizabeth Children’s Home, which is run by the Jesus Christ of Compassion Charitable Society. In what was a very special treat, they gathered with their teachers in the Monlam Pavilion, drank mango juice and munched biscuits. In addition each child received a new woollen blanket.  As part of Indian Republic Day celebrations, International Kagyu Monlam CEO Lama Chodrak organised a small party for thirty children from the local Christian orphanage.

The culmination of the celebration, however, was when the Gyalwang Karmapa himself came over to the pavilion especially to meet the children.
