The Power of Compassion - Tibetan Monks on Tuesday 22nd May 2018
Tibet, the Land of Snows: home of Buddhist lamas whose ancient rituals have fascinated people for thousands of years. Forced into exile following the Chinese invasion of 1959, the monks from Tashi Lhunpo Monastery share their endangered culture with audiences in the West.
The performance includes the music of the Himalayas: the long horns, bone trumpets, skull drums and oboes; masked dancers in brocade robes; the sacred chant from the monastery and an energetic display of the traditional art of debate, an essential part of the monks’ spiritual education. The event is accompanied by introductions explaining the background to the monastery and its arts.
From 23–26 May the monks are in residence
at West Berkshire Museum, creating a traditional Tibetan sand mandala.
‘A window of time onto
a magical universe of reincarnation and release ...’
Introduced by Jane Rasch
Music Genres: World Music
