Around 2000 people from different region joined the 'Monlam' with His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, at the Riverside Church, NY on May 2nd, 2015.

This Monlam, a mass prayer, initiated and lead by His Holiness himself for the victims of massive Nepal earthquake which took several thousands of lives recently. His Holiness after the prayers said, "We have gathered here today, to pray for those who passed away and to comfort for those who survived." His Holiness thanked many countries and organisations, who have extended their relief effort in Nepal.

In the end, His Holiness added, "I wanted to offer my strongest prayer for the good and happy rebirth of all those who have passed away due to this earthquake. And the quick elevation for those who have suffered and they all be speedily return to a state of comfort and happiness. His Holiness assured the people that he will do whatever he can to help the victims of this earthquake.







His Holiness has earlier instructed a committee called, "Karmapa Service Society-Earthquake Relief Committee" comprised of Kagyu monasteries and Karmapa Service Society to carry out the relief works in Nepal.

HIS HOLINESS THE GYALWANG KARMAPA HAS DONATED  $ 200,000 AID FOR THE VICTIMS OF THIS DISASTER AND TO HELP WITH THE TASK OF REBUILDING.

The people who gathered for the monlam also contributed their part towards this relief work in Nepal. And Karmapa Service Society-Earthquake Relief Committee will make sure this aid goes to the right place.

The monks and volunteer there are doing the best they could. And are trying to reach specially to those places where help couldn't reach much.

Let's pray that the people affected by this earthquake will soon strengthen themselves and rebuild thier lives.
