HHDL 33rd Kalachakra Initiation

Post by kirtu »

HHDL's 33rd Kalachakra Initiation began today in Ladakh at Likir Monastery. As usual, HHDL will teach for a week or so before beginning the actual initiation. Today's teaching was on the Heart Sutra.

Thanks for posting these!

As streaming is difficult for me I look forward to downloading and viewing them in the future once the teachings are over!

Voice of Tibet's video article on HHDL begining the Kalachakra Initiation in Ladakh. All in Tibetan
phpBB [video]


A Mongolian video on HHDL's teaching at the start of the 33rd Kalachakra. This is basically just video as the audio in minimal and low level.
phpBB [video]


This video is posted by Khaliun Tsevegdorj, certainly a Mongolian or Kalmyk or related people's name. Their Youtube video channel appears to have all of the daily activities in Ladakh so far. These are in Cyrillic under Калачакры в Ладаке (Kalachakra in Ladakh) and are numbered starting at 1 (the above video is 2).

Khaliun Tsevegdorj has posted more videos of today's activities and they are extensive (more extensive than the videos produced by HHDL's office which I except to be posted this evening). Unfortunately I do not have time to post the links at the moment but you can follow the link in the post above to find them.

However they have begun building the mandala.
