The Significance of Monlam: The term Monlam means the path of aspiration and is a form of prayer. Here, it refers to the tradition of Monlam Chenmo, the great prayer gathering.

This year, Sakya Monastery and the Sakya Monlam Committee are hosting the 3rd Annual North American Sakya World Peace Monlam. Dagmola gives us insight about the history and significance of this important annual prayer festival.
