We have posted a selection of photos from the 7th annual Jonang Monlam or Prayer Festival in Bodh Gaya, India. The photos include numerous images of torma, the Tibetan effigies used in the prayer ceremonies. The torma represent various deities and symbolic imagery associated with the Kalachakra and other tantric systems. There are also images of the Karmapa, Tulku Tashi Gyaltsen of the Dorje Ling centers, and Khenpo Chonam of Jonang Takten Ling Monastery in Shimla, India. Photos are courtesy of Thomas Roth.


Photos can be viewed in the Jonang Monlam gallery.
