Review by : Rudy Harderwijk
Overall Rating: 4-star

Apart from the 'nice' images explaining some essential Buddhist topics like the Wheel of Llife etc., the prime subject is a detailed 3-D model of the Kalachakra mandala palace and its main deities. The CD offers a unique animated view of the entire mandala - which was modeled under the guidance of Geshe Tenzin Dhargye, which is very helpful for visualisations. The animated deities are Kalachakra and Vishvamata and the Shaktis. Furthermore it contains a practical guide for the Kalachakra initiation as well as an explanation of the Inner, Outer and Alternative Kalachakra, and for those who have had the initiation, an animated sadhana.

This project was sponsored by She Drup Ling Graz who organized the Kalachakra initiation in Graz, Austria by the Dalai Lama.
