Tibetan Monks from Tashi Lhunpo Monastery

The Power of Compassion


Tibet - the Land of Snows: home of Buddhist lamas whose ancient rituals have fascinated people for thousands of years. Forced into exile by 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, part of the monks' spiritual education. The performance is accompanied by introductions explaining the background to the monastery and its arts. 

Running times are 50 min + 20 min interval + 45 min
