DOs and DON’Ts when attending the Monlam
For security reasons, the following items will not be allowed:Cameras, mobile phones, i-Pads, Androids, computers, scissors, knives, lighters, and aerosols. You will not be allowed to use your mobile as an FM radio. There will be nowhere to store these items securely, so please don’t bring them.
You may need to bring:
An FM radio with earphones to listen to translations of the teachings, prayers, and empowerments. We recommend you buy a radio in your own country because good quality radios are not available locally here in Bodhgaya. The English translation will be broadcast through the speakers for all the events, so you won’t need an FM if you listen to the English.
Your own cup, plate and utensils will be useful for the tea served during the break, and the complimentary lunch during the “Knowing One Frees All” initiations from Dec 20 – 25, 2014.
