CTA plans Programs and services for Kalachakra attendees

The governing body of exile Tibetans, the Central Tibetan Administration, is planning to hold a host of events and exhibitions during the upcoming Kalachakra teachings in Bodh Gaya, India. Different departments of the CTA will organize political and cultural events, as well as provide medical clinics for the 300,000 people expected to attend the religious teachings and empowerment over the course of two weeks starting January 1.

Secretary of the Department of Information and International Relations, Thubten Samphel, says that the DIIR is organizing public talks by Kalon Tripa Lobsang Sangay and former Kalon Tripa Samdong Rinpoche, exhibiting films and photos on Tibet, and distributing DVDs and literature that clarify the position of the Dalai Lama, and the issue of selecting his successor in the future.

CTA’s Health Department and the Tibetan Medical Centre will be setting up health clinics and presentations on health for the pilgrims and devotees, and the Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts [TIPA] will present the opera Nangsa Woebum and perform programs of traditional Tibetan songs and dances after the religious programs end on each day.
