Indooroopilly Monk Mandala Ceremony

SALISBURY, ENGLAND - OCTOBER 03:  Tibetan Monks from the Tashi Lhunpo Monastery , (L-R)Kachen Choedrak, Ven Lobzang Thokmed and Kachen Namgyal, complete a Chenrezig Sand Mandala in Salisbury Cathedrals Chapter House on October 3, 2013 in Salisbury, England. The monks, who started the painstaking process of creating the sand mandela with millions of grains of coloured sand on Monday, will end it tomorrow in a destruction ceremony and procession to the River Avon.  The monks who currently live in exile in India are visiting various places in the UK and Europe and will complete two more sand mandelas - which are an artistic tradition of Tibetan Buddhism and are a symbolic picture of the universe representing an imaginary palace - before returning home to their monastery in late November.

Join us in store from the 9th -12th of January to help us celebrate the creation of a beautiful sand mandala by visiting Tibetan Monks from Tashi Lhunpo Monastery, Central Tibet.

This special four day event is brought together in partnership with Festival of Tibet Founder, Tenzin Choegyal, and will allow you to witness the intricate nature and workmanship involved whilst millions of grains of sand are painstakingly laid into a breathtaking architecture of enlightenment.
The purpose of a mandala ceremony is to remind us that nothing is permanent. All things are always in flux, beautiful, but ephemeral . It is a stunning metaphor for the impermanence that surrounds us.

We would love you to join us in witnessing the beauty of this deeply rooted Tibetan tradition and to help us celebrate our 25th anniversary and the raising of awareness for the upcoming Festival of Tibet.
