Torma Artists are Gathering in Bodhgaya to Create New Kagyu Monlam Tormas

Months have passed and the time has rolled around again for the torma artists to gather in Bodhgaya and create their magic. Last year’s tormas are still inside Tergar Monastery. It’s interesting to see how well these fragile artworks have survived the elements here in India, including a very hot season followed by pounding monsoon rains with the attendant humidity that creeps into every crack and crevice. Still these beautiful images made of butter and wax have for the most part remained intact.
