Led by Je Karma Trinley Rinpoche
Lord Gampopa is one of the great Karma Kagyud lineage masters. He was entrusted by Milarepa with the complete Kagyu transmission - the only one of Milarepa's students so honoured. Gampopa mentioned “those who sincerely supplicate to me, their aspirations will be fulfilled. My blessings will enable their merits to arise naturally.”

We welcome all to join us!
As in previous years, we are organizing a robe offering to the monastic community in Nepal, in particular Jangchub Choeling Monastery. We welcome all to take part in this generous and meritorious act.
ABOUT ROBE OFFERING (KATINA)
The offering of a Katina robe is one of the eight most powerful noble acts. It is only possible to perform a noble offering of a Katina during the dispensation of a Samyaksambuddha. Then again, it can only be done in the human world and nowhere else. Furthermore, this noble deed is not to be seen or performed by people adhering to other faiths of the world. A unique feature of this noble meritorious act is that it is performed entirely in the name of Buddhist monks, by Buddhists or others with a clear understanding of Buddha-Dharma. It cannot, at all, be performed without Buddhist monks.
Under whatever circumstance, the offering of a Katina robe or any other item large or small accompanying such an offering, be it as small and insignificant as a mere needle, or a reel of cotton, is held by everyone as bearing tremendous fruit.
