The ‘hands-on’ workshop covers the following activities:
Tibetan language, Dukar-wheel making, sand mandala making, butter sculpture and prayer flag printing.
“The Power of Compassion” performance presents chant, mantras, music and dance by eight Tibetan Monks from Tashi 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 earth shattering sound of the dungchen (long horns), the Monks evoke the atmosphere of sacred Tibet: and experience of ancient culture accessible to all, with introductory explanations offering additional insight into this endangered world.
