Tibetan Monks, Drepung Monastery’s Gomang College
This program is a colorful display of traditional Tibetan arts. The monks will perform a variety of dances—the yak dance, snow lion dance, “good luck” dance—wearing special costumes. They also chant in the distinctive way that they use for pujas and will demonstrate their vigorous style of monastic debating.
This residency is sponsored by the Clarke Forum for Contemporary Issues and co-sponsored by a Center for Sustainability Education Grant, the Departments of East Asian Studies and Religion, Center for Service, Spirituality, and Social Justice, Waidner-Spahr Library, Division of Student Life and the Luce grant for Asian studies and the environment.
