Propitiation of Dolgyal is Mistake of Earlier Generations: Dalai Lama


Propitiation of Dolgyal is Mistake of Earlier Generations: Dalai Lama

On the second day of teachings in Tawang in the northeast state of Arunachal Pradesh, the Dalai Lama said that the practice of propitiation of deity Dolgyal was a mistake of earlier generations of Tibetans.

The Dalai Lama made the comment while explaining the 7th stanza of the "Thirty-Seven Practices of Bodhisattvas" on April 9, 2017, where he also gave initiation of Thousand Armed Avalokiteshvara to around 40,000 devotees gathered from different parts of Arunachal Pradesh and many from Bhutan.

After the teachings, Tibet's spiritual leader had lunch at Ugyenling, the birth place of 6th Dalai Lama Tsayang Gyatso, and then visited the memorial park of former Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh, Dorjee Khandu, consecrated a stupa, and inaugurated a museum.
