The upcoming 34th Kalachakra at Bodh Gaya will begin from 2 January and not 3 January as earlier announced.
The development came after His Holiness the Dalai Lama decided to add an extra day for the preliminary teachings of the Kalachakra initiation. Rest of the schedule for the Kalachakra remains unchanged.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama is scheduled to arrive at Bodh Gaya on 28 December 2016.
The 34th Kalachakra Initiation, being organised by the Central Tibetan Administration, is expected to draw at least 2,00,000 devotees from across the world.
The tentative schedule for the 34th Kalachakra is as follows:
2-4 January 2017 – Kalachakra Ritual Preparation
5-8 January 2017 – Kalachakra Preliminary Teachings
9 January 2017 – Kalachakra Ritual and Offering Dance
10 January 2017 – Students Preparation (Preliminary Initiation)
11 – 13 January 2017 – Kalachakra Initiation
14 January 2017 – Long Life Empowerment for the Public and Long Life Ceremony for His Holiness
