In January 2016, the Coral Springs Museum of Art had the pleasure of hosting Eight Tibetan Buddhist monks from the Drepung Gomang Monastery, students of H.H. Dalai Lama, as part of the Sacred Art Tour. We are so excited to share that the Sacred Tour will be visiting us again from January 17 to 22, 2017 to spread the monks’ message of peace, loving kindness, wisdom, and compassion. During their stay, the monks will construct the renowned Sand Mandala to depict intricate patterns and designs that represent sacred textual Buddhist imagery. Programs during the Sacred Art Tour will include artistic workshops, casual conversations with the monks, a cultural pageant, and more! Funds raised from this event support their Monastery in southern India.
