Moenlam chenpo

circumambulating the prayer hall 2Yesterday I attended the moenlam chenpo in Haa and, with my extended family, offered lunch to the devotees. The prayers for universal peace and harmony have been conducted in Haa annually since its inception in 2001. And His Holiness the Je Khenpo has personally led the prayers there every year.

People from every village in Haa, some having walked for several days, are participating in the moenlam chenpo, which is being conducted in the compounds of the Lhakhang Karpo. Devotees from neighboring Paro and Thimphu are also attending the sacred event.

The photograph shows the faithful circumambulating the main prayer hall. You’ll find a few more pictures from the moenlam chenpo in the photo gallery.
