Tibetan Monks Hands-on Workshop
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Meet the Tibetan monks from Tashi Lhunpo who are making a Peace Mandala in the Tantric tradition. They will introduce you to the unique traditions of Buddhist monastic art, including mandala making, printing prayer flags and the 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. Tashi Lhunpo is one of the most important monasteries in Tibetan Buddhism, now in exile in India. A chance to learn more about an ancient, endangered culture.
