Tibetan Buddhist Monks visit from India

June 15 @ 10:00 am - 8:00 pm

Free – $20
The main purpose of the tour is to share with all people the monks’ culture, as well as practices of meditation and paths to inner peace and compassion. The second purpose of tour is construction of a new Khangtsen or dormitory. In our Khangtsen, we had only 120 rooms’ to accommodate 450 monks, with the monks facing the difficulty of sharing one room with three monks. Because of the recurring problems related to the limited rooms encountered by our monks, we have jointly come to the decision to build 60 new rooms to accommodate those elder Geshe for better living standard. June 15&16 we have an event each night at OM Center downtown.
We are then visiting Drips Botanical Elements at 1822 vinton street to construct a sand mandala starting June 18 with a short opening ceremony with dissolution June 22nd. The monks spend at least 100 hours to build the mandala then with a special ceremony, they sweep the sand away.
