Around a hundred monks and nuns from thirty five Karma Kagyu monasteries and nunneries in India, Nepal and Bhutan have been attending torma art classes in Vajra Vidya Institute, Thrangu Rinpoche’s monastery in Sarnath, since the beginning of December. The students are being taught by two statue artists from Bhutan who are teaching all the beginner and advanced classes. This six-week long course has been particularly blessed by the presence of His Holiness Karmapa in Vajra Vidya Institute during the last week, under whose spiritual guidance these classes are taking place and who has taken the art of torma making to astonishing levels in recent years. Many of the students here will come to Bodhgaya one month before the 29th Kagyu Monlam to help prepare the tormas for this auspicious event. We hope many of you will be able to attend the monlam this year to witness this exquisite torma art on site.
