Kalachakra at Amravati in 2006
TibetNet[Sunday, March 27, 2005 01:31]
Dharamsala, March 26 - As requested by Japan-based Busshokai Foundation through Norbulingka institute, His Holiness the Dalai Lama has kindly consented to bestow Kalachakra initiation in January 2006 at Amravati in Andhra Pradesh. The small town in southeastern India is holy for the Buddhists as it was the place where Lord Buddha gave the first Kalachakra root tantra on the request of King Dawa Sangpo (Suchandra).

The 13-day gathering will begin on 3 January 2006 with preliminary teachings. However, the actual Kalachakra initiation will be given on 13 and 14 January. This Kalachakra will be sponsored by Busshokai Foundation and will be organised by the Norbulingka institute.

A committee has been set up to overlook the preparations for the religious gathering. A website www.kalachakra06.com is being constructed to give information on the event. Information about the Kalachakra will also be provided in the various medias.

This Kalachakra is the 30th and it significantly coincides with the 2550th anniversary of the passing way of Lord Buddha. His Holiness the Dalai Lama gave the first Kalachakra initiation in 1954 at Norbulingka in Lhasa, Tibet.
