Tashi Lhunpo Monastery Monks

At Lakeside Arts

Description

The Power of Compassion


Tibet – a world filled with the chanting of Buddhist texts, recitation of mantras, ringing of bells, blowing of trumpets and beating of drums. Founded by the first Dalai Lama in the 15th Century, and the seat of the Panchen Lamas, Tashi Lhunpo is one of the most important monasteries in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Re-established in exile in South India, it is once again becoming one of the major centres of Buddhist learning and artistic tradition.

Recreating the mysteries of the Buddhist Monastery, eight Tibetan monks from Tashi Lhunpo offer a dramatic presentation of sacred dance, music and chanted prayer with traditional costumes and ceremonial masks.
