The Karmapa Inspects the Butter Sculptures Created for the 29th Kagyu Monlam

This video shows the Karmapa inspecting this year’s Kagyu Monlam butter sculptures and the tormas created for the upcoming Mahakala pujas. The monk walking beside him is the Torma Master, Lama Sangye. The Gyalwang Karmapa requests monk and nun artists from Karma Kagyu monasteries and nunneries throughout India, Nepal, and Bhutan to come to Bodhgaya about a month before the monlam begins to create the butter sculptures.
