This is not really about a sacred site or a traditional pilgrimage place, but certainly Buddhists or anyone who has a deep respect for His Holiness The Dalai Lama may be interested to know that he is going to be in Mexico City this September.
The Dalai Lama will give a three-day teaching on the Six Paramitas (“Perfections”) on September 8, 9 and 10.
In honor of the Dalai Lama’s visit, a spiritual travel opportunity is being offered by the Marquis Reforma’s “Enlightenment” package, which includes admission to the September 9th teaching by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and accommodations for two nights, September 8th and 9th.
Marquis Reforma’s “Enlightenment” spiritual travel package is priced at $450 or $550 per person, depending on the seating section in the Metropolitan Theatre, a 10-minute drive from the hotel.
To reserve the “Enlightenment” spiritual travel package call the Marquis Reforma toll free at 877-238-9399 or directly at 011-52-624-144-2000. For more information on Marquis Reforma please visit Mexico City Hotels (www.marquisreforma.com).
The Marquis Reforma (www.marquisreforma.com) is a 209-room boutique hotel on fashionable Paseo de la Reforma. The hotel is a short walk from the City’s finest museums including the renowned Museum of Anthropology.
Marquis Reforma’s spacious, elegant spa is the largest in the region and recently introduced ayurvedic treatments to its extensive menu. For dining, the hotel’s new Los Canarios restaurant is one of the City’s top dining spots, where live canaries serenade guests. La Jolla restaurant serves a savory Mexican buffet and an a la carte menu of international favorites, and the Lounge on the lobby level offers a chic ambience for evening cocktails and lavish Sunday brunch.
Marquis Reforma’s unique mix of Mexican art with Art Deco designs enhances its charm and warmth. Its glowing pink granite and glass façade has welcomed celebrities including Salma Hayek, Sting, Liza Minelli, Phil Collins, and Elton John. All rooms and suites offer dramatic views over Mexico City’s rooftops or Reforma Avenue.
It is said that the positive energies of pilgrims visiting a site help contribute to its energies, so perhaps the fact that the Dalai Lama and his followers will be at the Metropolitan Theater may help make it a future pilgrimage site.
