Dharamsala 14 August 2006 (phayul.com) - His Holiness the Dalai Lama today began a 5 day long teaching at the special request by a group of around 200 from Korea from morning 9:30 local time here at the Tsuglagkhang Temple in the Northern Indian hill town of Dharamsala.

The teaching, beginning today, will end on 18th August.

According to the official Website of His Holiness, www.dalailama.com, the teaching will cover Chapter 9 on The Perfection of Wisdom from A Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life (chodjug) by Shantideva along with a teaching on The 37 Practices of A Bodhisattva (lak-len so-dun-ma) and Chapters 18, 22, 24 & 26 of Nagarjuna's The Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle Way (Uma Tsawa Sherab).

This is His Holiness' first mass public appearance since His last teaching to a group of Taiwanese towards the last week of June this year.

Earlier in August, His Holiness spent much of His time, including His 71st Birthday on July 6, taking rest due to some minor health concerns and had to cancel His, otherwise, very tight and busy official programs.

The teaching is scheduled to be from 9:30 to 1:30 in the morning and afternoon from 1: 30 to3:30 local time all through the 5 days' teaching.
