“Many different ethnic groups and different languages from all over the world have gathered for the sake of peace. We’ve come here with the same wishes and intentions, and the power of positive aspirations is magnified when performed together, with a single intention, by many people.”

-His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa during the 31st Kagyu Monlam in Bodhgaya, India
