Before the end of the Kagyu Gunchoe, Guru Vajradhara Chamgon Kenting Tai Situ Rinpoche arrived from his monastery, Sherabling, in Himachal Pradesh.  He has come primarily to preside over the Kagyu Monlam but will participate in the closing sessions of the Kagyu Gunchoe.

Tai Situpa was received at the airport by Mingyur Rinpoche and Gyalton Rinpoche.

A Golden Procession, as befits a high lama, welcomed him to Tergar monastery. Monks strew petals on the path ahead of him, and the ground was carpeted with red rose petals and orange and yellow marigolds, and his path was decorated with a lotus and dharmachakra made of blossoms, as well as the eight auspicious symbols. 

A grand procession led him into Tergar shrine room. After he had prostrated and mounted the throne, Mingyur Rinpoche led the ku-sung-thuk mandala offering.

In celebration, sweet rice and Tibetan tea were distributed.

This event marked a momentous occasion, the first time that Situ Rinpoche has been able to attend Kagyu Monlam in recent years. He will preside over it.
