This is His Holiness' first mass public appearance since His last teaching to a group of Taiwanese towards the last week of June this year.
Earlier in August, His Holiness spent much of His time, including His 71st Birthday on July 6, taking rest due to some minor health concerns and had to cancel His, otherwise, very tight and busy official programs.
The teaching is scheduled to be from 9:30 to 1:30 in the morning and afternoon from 1: 30 to3:30 local time all through the 5 days’ teaching.
