“The Great Prayer Festival is dedicated to the long life of holy Gurus of all traditions, for the survival and spread of Dharma to the minds of all sentient beings and for world peace”

It is so wonderful to see the scenes from Shar Gaden at their Monlam 2011 festival. Monks young and old joined together in the celebration.

Long horns are being played by the monks. The sound of the long horns mimic the trumpeting of the elephants. Long horn music is also used to welcome high lamas coming to teach or give a discourse. It is similar to how Buddha Shakyamuni was welcomed wherever he went with a lot of fanfare and pomp.

The monks are in a procession during the Monlam festival 2011 singing the Gaden ‘Migtsema’ tune. The melody of the conch signifies the gentle spreading of the dharma. Buddhism is not spread through the use of force. The video concludes when the monk procession returns back to Shar Gaden Monastery.

Contemplate This

.…Instead of turning away people who practise Dorje Shugden, we should be kind to them. Give them logic and wisdom without fear, then in time they give up the ‘wrong’ practice. Actually Shugden practitioners are not doing anything wrong. But hypothetically, if they are, wouldn’t it be more Buddhistic to be accepting? So those who have views against Dorje Shugden should contemplate this. Those practicing Dorje Shugden should forbear with extreme patience, fortitude and keep your commitments. The time will come as predicted that Dorje Shugden’s practice and it’s terrific quick benefits will be embraced by the world and it will be a practice of many beings.
