On July 19, 1999, The Courier-Journal of Louisville reported that the Dalai Lama will visit Indiana in August for several events. On August 16th, he will be greeted in a welcoming ceremony in Market Square Arena in Indianapolis. On August 17th and 18th, he will speak at two separate events at the Indiana University in Bloomington. On August 19th, he will lead daily teachings for the Kalachakra Initiation, an eight-day Buddhist ritual to create peace and harmony, at the Tibetan Cultural Center. The Tibetan Cultural Center was begun by the Dalai Lama's brother, retired Indiana University professor Thubten Norbu. The Dalai Lama has visited Bloomington on two other occasions and will be leading his fourth Kalachakra Initiation in the United States.
