Tashi Lhunpo Monks: Art Workshop

Wednesday 25 September 4pm - 5:30pm

Thursday 26 September 11am - 12:30pm

An opportunity to meet the eight Tibetan monks from Tashi Lhunpo, who will introduce you to the unique traditions of Buddhist monastic art.  These include sand mandala making – ‘painting’ with coloured grains of ground marble – the printing of prayer flags and the delicate art of butter sculpture.  You can learn some Tibetan language or make a dukar wheel which will be blessed by the monks to offer protection from negative influences. A chance to learn first hand about an ancient, endangered culture.

Tashi Lhunpo is one of the most important monasteries in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, now re-established in exile in India.  The monks join as children, from as young as 10 or 11 and study in the monastery for their entire lives.  The traditional art in the monastery is taught by teachers who have passed down their knowledge from generation to generation of monks, who have studied these techniques as part of their spiritual lives.  The monks have toured in the UK, Europe and around the world sharing their traditions with people in order to make sure that these priceless arts are preserved for the future. Facilitator Jane Rasch runs the Tashi Lhunpo Monastery UK Trust and has taught English to Tibetan refugees in India as well as working for Tashi Lhunpo.  She set up the Charity, with its Patron HH the Dalai Lama, in 2003.
