Dalai Lama Teaching for Mongolians

His Holiness the Dalai Lama began a five-day teaching at the Main Temple in Dharmasala on December 22, at the request of Gandan Thegchenling Monastery of Ulan Bator, Mongolia.

Some 250 Buddhists from Mongolia, mainly monks from the monastery, are attending the teachings. Hundreds of Tibetans, a sizeable number of Buddhists from Korea and western countries, and some Chinese Buddhists attended the first day of teachings. Accordingly, simultaneous translation of the teachings is made available in English, Mongolian, Chinese and Korean on FM channels.

Of the five days, the initial two days’ teachings, between 1300hrs and 1600hrs, are devoted to conferment of the 13 Deity Yamantaka Initiation. His Holiness will formally give teachings on Lobsang Choekyen’s Lama Choepa (Guru Puja) on December 23 to 26 from 0800 hrs to 1130hrs.
