Kalachakra, A Triumph of Tibetan Culture showing on Truckee campus of Sierra College

TRUCKEE, Calif. and#8212; Photos by Derek Larson at the Tahoe-Truckee Campus of Sierra College, through November. As a college student in 1989, Larson travelled to Nepal and Northern India, where he became enthralled with Tibetan culture. He received a press pass to cover the Kalachakra, a religious event conducted by the Dalai Lama to bring Tibetans together and prevent the erosion of a culture living in exile. Larson teaches biology at Sierra College.
