Tashi Lhunpo Monks of Tibet

Saturday 3 June 2023

This event has passed.

Rail strikes are planned on Saturday 3 June 2023, please leave extra time for your journey.

Tibetan Buddhist monks from Tashi Lhunpo Monastery join us for a dramatic presentation of sacred music, dances, and prayers, with traditional costumes and ceremonial masks.

From the contemplative, mesmerising chant of Buddhist texts to swirling dances accompanied by ancient musical instruments, including long horns, bells and drums, the monks offer a fascinating glimpse into an ancient culture, with introductory explanations offering additional insight into this endangered world.

Founded by the first Dalai Lama in 1447 in Shigatse, Central Tibet, Tashi Lhunpo is one of the most important monasteries in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition and now re-established in exile in India.
