Sierra Friends of Tibet Auburn, in conjunction with the General Gomez Arts and Events center, is pleased to announce the return of the Tibetan Monks from Gaden Shartse Monastery's Sacred Earth and Healing Arts Tour February 24 - March 4 2020 presented at the General Gomez Arts and Event Center. Please join us!
This much anticipated visit will provide a variety of Tibetan cultural presentations for 10 days giving area residents and visitors a chance to experience first hand the unique culture of the Tibetan people and the rich traditions of Tibet and Tibetan Buddhism. This will include the creation of a beautiful Sand Mandala, carefully constructed over the course of their 10 day visit, following ancient Buddhist symbolic designs. Each grain of sand will be carefully laid down by hand using techniques unchanged for millennia. The public will be able to observe and enjoy this moving and meditative process as the monks work. Come throughout the 10 days to fully experience the ever changing work in process. The Gomez Arts and Events Center will be open daily for Mandala viewing from 10:00 am until 6:00pm.
When the mandala is finished, there will be a special ritual to bless the mandala and mark its completion. Following the blessing the mandala will be ritually dissolved (always a 'standing room only' event), highlighting by example the Buddhist view of impermanence. The sand is then swept up into a pile with small portions of the sand being offered as gifts to members of the audience. The rest of the sand is taken to a body of water where, after a short ceremony, it will be poured into the water as a blessing to purify the environment and all the beings that inhabit it.
