According to the Tibetan calendrical cycle, 2014 is the Year of the Horse. This is the year during the 12-year long astrological cycle during which the effects of pilgrimage are considered to be multiplied manifold, particularly by circling around Mount Kailash.
Pilgrimage around Mt. Kailash is a Tibetan pilgrimage tradition since the time of Milarepa in the 12th century, and continues on to this day. See, 2014 Horse Year Festival at Mt. Kailash.
I am thrilled to be leading two back-to-back specialized Jonang Foundation pilgrimage programs this May and June,
Trip 01: Lhasa & Surrounding Yogin Caves
May 25-June 04
Trip 02: Great Horse Year Festival at Mount Kailash
