Discover More About Tibetan Art and Culture at the North American Goodwill Tour

Eight Tibetan Buddhist monks from the Drepung Gomang Monastery, students of H.H. Dalai Lama, will visit the Coral Springs Museum of Art from Tuesday, June 5, 2018 through Sunday, June 10, 2018. This six-day visit will entail traditional cultural teachings and artistic expression. The Coral Springs Museum of Art is one of only many locations that the monks will visit on their 2018 North American Goodwill Tour.

This event is part of the monk’s mission to spread the message of peace, loving kindness, wisdom, and compassion while sharing their traditional Tibetan arts and culture. Funds raised from this event support their Monastery in southern India. During their stay, the monks will devote each day from 10:00 a.m. until closing time, constructing the renowned sand mandala. Sacred Tibetan practices and chanting open and close each day.

Artistic workshops feature the painting of Tibetan peace symbols on stones called Mani Stones, the ancient art of butter sculpture and coloring Tibetan designs for children. Cultural pageantry presents costume, ritual dance, song, and chants.

If you feel like escaping The Hamptons on Heron Bay Apartments in Coral Springs, Florida for the day, this event is a perfect opportunity to do just that!
