Flower arrangement by HH the 17th Karmapa



Flower arrangement by HH the 17th Karmapa


Special features of the 29th Kagyu International Monlam: at the Monlam Pavilion




The flower arrangements

Spectacular bouquets of large red and yellow roses and huge white chrysanthemums line either side of the central staircase on the Monlam stage. Specially prepared by a group of Taiwanese women, the bouquets are based on an original flower arrangement created by the Gyalwang Karmapa himself.  His Holiness has been a frequent visitor to their backstage work-area, not just watching but enthusiastically joining in with the flower arranging whilst chatting away with them in Chinese.  The flowers themselves, though mainly artificial, are of the highest quality and convincingly lifelike. Arrangements of fresh flowers decorate the tables of His Holiness, Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche and Gyaltsap Rinpoche.

The base of the stage is cloaked by pots of foliage plants – also artificial.
