Tibetan Monks at Yoga Central
November 6th - 11th, 2023
We are proud to welcome back the Tibetan Monks of the Drepung Gomang Monastery!
At Yoga Central, our Cleveland Avenue location, the Monks will offer authentic Tibetan programs that are a blend of ancient cultural, religious, and artistic expressions. Traditionally, these were secret practices, but now the monks want to share with the world their spiritual practices.
They want to see you, teach about their history and practices, and spread peace and goodwill.
The monks are available to give talks on the main tenets of Buddhist philosophy and are happy to answer your questions about the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. The monks offer prayers for your home, your well-being, for the clearing of karma, purification, world peace, individual or global healing, spiritual evolution, the development of wisdom, and the removal of obstacles.
The prayers are recited in the traditional overtone chanting, each monk singing a full chord of three notes—something Western musicians thought was impossible until encountering this practice in Tibet! The prayers are often accompanied by symbolic hand gestures, cymbals, drums, horns and flutes.
