Dear Friends,

Beginning on July 6, 2011, the 76th birthday of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, a Kalachakra for World Peace will be offered in the heart of the US capital, Washington, DC. His Holiness will offer this great ritual empowerment, including preparatory teachings, from July 6 through 16.

The Capital Area Tibetan Association (CATA), along with the greater Tibetan community, Mongolians, Kalmyks, and the peoples of the Himalyan regions, join in acting on behalf of Buddhists throughout North America and the world. Together, we realize that the Kalachakra offers an unparalleled way to amplify the profound, unshakable commitment of His Holiness to values such as love, compassion, wisdom and interfaith harmony.

In addition, we humbly want to offer our work on this great event as an expression of gratitude to the people of the United States, our host country, and to all those in the Western Hemisphere and around the world who have so kindly supported the preservation of Tibet's rich culture, spiritual heritage, and distinctive identity for many years now. We deeply appreciate how your kind and generous commitments has enabled Tibet's unique spiritual wisdom-heritage to survive, spread and take root in all parts of our world.

The Kalachakra for World Peace 2011 will unfold in a world capital where local actions deeply and globally affect the lives of so many. It will provide a rare chance to act in powerful spiritual harmony as part of a huge group dedicated to invoking the power of great wisdom and compassion, so urgently needed in today's world.

Highly accomplished spiritual practitioners from many traditions respect and honor the ancient ritual of the Kalachakra, first offered by Shakyamuni Buddha in India. Those who are devoted to achieving world peace can join like-minded others in an event made sacred by the moral force of our common motivation to benefit all.

As you can imagine, the expenses of holding such a long event in the center of a major city are formidable. We deeply appreciate any help you can offer. Your sponsorships and your donations, from the large to the small, will help us set ticket prices as low as possible so they are affordable to the largest number of people.

Together, we will gather to raise a living mandala, with His Holiness the Dalai Lama at the center, to teach us, guide us, inspire us, and bless us. Our beautiful and spacious venue will hold many comfortably, and we invite you to join us in seeing a great hall filled with devoted attendees, notable for their commitment to achieving kindness, wisdom and peace in our world, the antidotes so deeply needed to overcome forces of divisiveness.

You, by attending, will be the very instrument through which the great mandala of the Kalachakra for World Peace 2011 arises. Please join us in this noble gathering.

Information is provided throughout this website, and we welcome your interest and your questions, so feel welcome to contact us.

Sincerely yours,

Kalden Lodoe,
President of The Capital Area Tibetan Association

Lobsang Nyandak,
Representative of His Holiness the Dalai Lama
The Office of Tibet
Co-Chairs of the Kalachakra for World Peace 2011

    grasping the letter of the text and ignoring its intention!
