Aug.28,2018--The 11th Panchen Lama Erdeni Choskyi Gyalpo held a longevity Kalachakra ceremony for religious followers from August 17 to 18 at Dakpo Shadrup Ling Monastery in Lhoka, Tibet Autonomous Region.
 
The monastery is located in Gyaca County (Gyaca means “Han salt” in Tibetan) in the middle reaches of the Yarlung Tsangpo River in southeastern Tibet. It is said that when Princess Wencheng traveled through here, she left behind a piece of salt, and the county thus got its name.
 
About 40 minutes from Naidong District of Lhoka City along the 306 Provincial Highway, one enters the Dagu Canyon, situated between two mountains and a river. The Panchen Lama went to Dakpo Shadrup Ling Monastery to worship and also to hold a longevity Kalachakra ceremony for local monks and Buddhist followers. Guided by monks holding incense and blowing horns and escorted by a monk holding a yellow umbrella, the Panchen Lama stepped into the Dukang Temple of the monastery. After prostrating to the Buddha, he ascended the throne, leading sutras and smiling as he took the manza offered piously by the monks. He then touched their heads to bless them and gave alms.
