I saw the above photo the other day of HH the Dalai Lama, beginning the mandala for the Kalachakra initiation. I know not everyone is going to be able to make it to the initiation, so I thought I would share this photo for those of us who might not get a chance, but would be otherwise happy to know its happening.
The last time HH gave the Kalachakra in India was in 2006, and the last time he gave it specifically in Bodh Gaya (as he is doing this year), it was 2003. I think this is a great time to rejoice in the opportunity of our Dharma brothers and sisters that will get a chance to be here for this momentous event =D
Below is a video with Robert Thurman and His Holiness, explaining the significance of the Kalachakra
