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.
