In the morning at 8:30 am His Holiness consecrated two acres of land, adjacent to Tergar Monastery, which was bought in October 2008 for the new Kagyu Monlam Centre. Half of the land was officered by the Ven. Mingyur Rinpoche. The Centre, designed by Taiwanese engineer, Choekyi Gyatso, will provide accommodation and offices for Kagyu Monlam staff.

Gyalwang Karmapa recited The Twelve Deeds of the Buddha, made a tea offering to Mahakala and the dharma protectors, and concluded the ceremony with the Prayer of the Eight Auspiciousnesses and a prayer for the Buddha’s teachings to flourish.

Later that day His Holiness visited the Vietnamese Temple, he blessed the temple and had a Vietnamese tea.
