Dear dharma friends:

c
Greetings from the Monastery! KTD is just finishing its Vajrayogini Drupchod, and is preparing for its annual Amitabha Retreat in late December and First Light prayers for World Peace on January 1.
As you know, KTD experienced an Internet difficulty this week when its www.kagyu.orgwebsite went offline due to a server glitch.
c
We are happy to report that the website is back up and running now, and would like to encourage you to use the site to participate in the annual First Light lamp offerings.
 c
Each year, we offer 108 lamps for World Peace at sunrise on New Year’s Day, covering the globe with light for an auspicious start to the New Year.
 c
Many people already are participating. They are lighting lamps for their families and loved ones, and for those who have passed away. They’re lighting lamps for the long lives of their teachers, and for the development of the dharma – their own practice, and dharma in the world at large. And in times like these, we need love and light more than ever.
