Mystical Arts of Tibet
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 wil 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 a keepsake to promote wellbeing in their own lives. Don't miss this rich cultural experience of Buddhist tradition.
The monks will be at RiverCenter from Feb. 13-17, with the performance on Friday, Feb. 16 at 7:30 PM. There will be a mandala ceremony on Saturday, Feb. 17 following market days.
Location: RiverCenter 900 Broadway, Collumbus, GA
