2014 Horse Year Festival at Mt. Kailash

We are happy to announce that the Jonang Foundation 2014 pilgrimage to Tibet will be for the Wood Horse Year Festival at Mount Kailash, June 3rd to 24th.

The year 2014 is the Year of the Wood Horse according to the Tibetan lunar calendar. This is the year during the 12-yearlong astrological cycle that is understood to magnify the beneficial effects of pilgrimage.

The Horse Year Festival will occur on Saga Dawa, June 13, 2014.
