The Mystical Arts of Tibet

February 16 @ 7:30 pm


In this world tour endorsed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the monks of Drepung Loseling Monastery in South India are traveling to promote world peace and healing through the sharing of Tibet’s authentic sacred performances and visual arts.

Over the course of four days the monks will complete musical demonstrations and a sacred ceremony in celebration of purification, positive energy, and life. They will create a large, intricate mandala of colored sand in the RiverCenter lobby before ceremoniously disassembling the mandala and releasing sands into the Chattahoochee River, symbolizing the impermanence of life. Audience members will also receive sand from the mandala as keepsakes to promote wellbeing in their own lives. Don’t miss this rich cultural experience of Buddhist tradition during The Mystical Arts of Tibet.
