Tashi Lhunpo Monks at Lupton House – 28th September 2019

The Tashi Lhunpo Monks are back at Lupton House on the 28th September for a ‘hands on’ workshop & a mesmerising performance!

The workshop covers the following activities:

Tibetan language, Dukar-wheel making, sand mandala making, butter sculpture, prayer flag printing.

“The Power of Compassion” performance presents chant, mantras, music and dance by eight Tibetan Monks fromTashi Lhunpo Monastery who open a magical window on to a world of reincarnation and Buddhist mysticism. From the mesmerising chant of Buddhist texts to swirling costumed masked dances accompanied by ancient Tantric musical instruments including horns made from human leg bones, skull-drums, cymbals, bells and with the shattering sound of the dungchen (long horns), the Monks evoke the atmosphere of sacred Tibet: an experience of an ancient culture accessible to all, with introductory explanations offering additional insight into this endangered world.

Trial repairs on the Italianate Garden

The Italianate Garden here at Lupton House has undergone some trial repair work!

For more information on the work that has been completed, visit Jonathan Rhind Architects Blog by clicking here.

Jonathan Rhind Architects and William & Burrows Heritage Repairs have been working alongside the Lupton Trust in this Historic England funded project.

“This trial repair work has focused on introducing new stone to replace the heavily eroded original stone and the re-use and salvage of original features.”
