Dharamsala, June 17 - Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama will participate in the 'Kalachakra' (Wheel of Time) ceremony and pray for world peace in the mountainous district of Ladakh in Jammu and Kashmir next month, an aide said Tuesday.

The spiritual leader would reach Leh July 3.

Before this, he would participate in religious activities and teach in Padum in Kargil district and Likir in Ladakh district.

Organisers of the 'Kalachakra' ceremony said more than 25,000 Buddhists from across the globe would converge on Leh for the occasion.
