The Grand Finale

A Journey to the Roof of the World: Sacred Dance and Chants of Tibet. Long hidden behind the Himalayan mountain ranges, the ancient Tibetan culture remained virtually untouched by the outside world for thousands of years. Though these are secret and sacred dances not intended for the general public, on tour the Monks are able to perform short excerpts from these dances along with Tibetan folk dances. Elaborate costumes, enchanting music and a glimpse into a hidden culture make this event an opportunity for entertainment and learning for the whole family. Two-hour stage program; suggested $20 donation.

Chay Drol Purification Ritual

Literally translated as "to make free of obstacles," Chay Drol is a ritual that helps to remove impediments, which prevent one from achieving enlightenment. The ritual begins with the Lama generating himself in the form of a deity. He then places colored strings and pieces of cloth on various parts of the participant's body; and through ritual, one's negativities and obstacles are fused to the strings and pieces of cloth. The Lama then uses 'Wisdom Weapons' to cut the obstacles from the participant, thereby freeing them and opening the door to liberation; $20.00 suggested donation. Call 638-4197.
