On the second day of the puja, the monks of Namgyal performed the sacred ritual Kalachakra dance (sa-ghar). And on the third day, four monks of the monastery started making the colored sand mandala of the Kalachakra. The construction of the sand mandala was completed on 19th April.
The actual ritual ceremony of the Kalachakra began on 15th of third month of the Tibetan lunar calendar (22nd of April).
This year the ritual ceremony was blessed by the presence of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, who attended the puja on the first day.
The ritual ceremony concludes on 27th April with a ritual fire puja and then in the afternoon of the same day, the abbot will dismantle the sand mandala, which is one of the important parts of the ritual performance.
Next day, the monks will take the sand collected in the pot for Nagar puja at the river side and will offer the sand into the river.
