Monks return to Lismore

THE YERPA monks from Southern India return to Lismore next week to perform Cham dancing and Chod practice at the Yoga Space, 131 Keen Street.

Cham is a masked and costume dance accompanied by traditional Tibetan instruments. The dance is considered to be a form of meditation and involve slow spinning and vigorous body movements. Chod is a traditional Tibetan spiritual practice that translates to 'cutting through the ego'. Using a large hand-held drum, the monks will perform music, song, meditation and prayer.

Everybody is welcome to attend on Tuesday, February 19 at 9.30am or Wednesday, February 20 at 7pm. Entry is by donation with all money going to build a new temple at the Sera Mey monastery in South India.
