Experience the beauty and mystery of Tibetan culture! In a week-long residency, the monks of Drepung Loseling Monestary will create a mandala, where millions of grains of colored sand are intricately laid into place. Community members can watch this process and help create our own mandala. When the week is over, the sands of the mandala are swept up and ceremoniously poured into Indian Creek, symbolizing the impermanence of life. Friday September 30 7:00 pm Jewett Auditorium: Sacred Music Sacred Dance for World Healing features the monks playing Tibetan musical instruments such as the 10-foot-long dung-chen horns. The effect of these instruments will be heightened by traditional dance and the mesmerizing, multiphonic chanting for which Drepung Loseling is renowned.
