Bodhgaya, Dec.15 (ANI): Thousands of Buddhist monks assembled at the Bodhgaya Buddhist shrine on Wednesday to attend an eight-day prayer session for peace.


The Buddhist monks, who have come from nine nations, chanted prayers for world peace and harmony.


"Every year, for this puja here, His Holiness Karmapa and many other great masters and many other monks also, we pray for world peace in the country," said Nama Kama Chuida, a Buddhist Monk from Darjeeling.


The 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, who was also present at the prayer session, said that they would pray to Lord Buddha for the next eight days.
