At Bodh Gaya in Bihar, more than 100 Buddhist monks attended 32nd 'Nyingma Monlam Chenmo' and offered special prayers for world peace.
While talking to ANI, a former trustee of the event said, "Before the (Coronavirus) pandemic, around 10,000 monks and the devotees used to participate in the event every year. But due to the restrictions, the number of participants has been restricted this year. Prayers for world peace marked the beginning of the nine-day 32nd Nyingma Monlam Chenmo Puja."
Nyingma Monlam Chenmo International Foundation organized the event under the Bodhi Tree on the Mahabodhi Mahavihara campus of Gaya district. The event was started on January 14 and will conclude on January 23, 2021.
