Hey hey its the monks

Nice hats! The Tashi Lhunpo monks are here on the North Coast for meditation, divination and a bit of sand madala-ing. Maybe some surfing...

From September 25-30, the Tashi Lhunpo monks bring their Mystical Arts of Tibet Tour to the A&I Hall in Bangalow. This week of divinations, meditations, sand mandala creation (for world peace), and a talk on re-incarnation will be opened by Byrons mayor, Jan Barnham.

All talks, divinations and meditations will be by Ngakchen Rinpoche Tenzin Tsultrim, one of the most respected re-incarnated lamas of the Tashi Lhunpo Monastery and a master of sutra and tantra. Whoa! He will be translated by Tibetan performer Tenzin Choegyal.

The week will end with the Big Happiness Concert on Friday, September 29, from 8pm.

The famed multiphonic singers of Tibets Tashi Lhunpo Monastery will perform their distinctive songs. With this style of singing, the monks simultaneously sing three notes. They also play traditional instruments like the 10-foot-long dung-chen horns, drums, bells, cymbals and gyaling trumpets.

Tibetan musician and singer Tenzin Choegyal will also perform.

Tickets for this concert are $25/20 and available through the week at the venue or at the Urban Caf and Barebones Art Space in Bangalow.
