GYUTO MONKS OF TIBET IN FREMANTLE

After last year’s visit to Fremantle by the Dalai Lama, the Gyuto Monks of Tibet are in the middle of their visit to Fremantle for twelve days.

Gyuto Monks of Tibet have come from their monastery in Dharamsala in the foothills of the Himalayas. Their 700 year old pure tradition of tantric ritual and ceremony makes them a precious and highly respected monastery in the Tibetan Buddhist pantheon

Over the last week the monks have been working on the Chakrasamvara sand mandala a stunning but ephemeral piece of art – designed to be swept away when completed as a symbol of impermanence and non-attachment to material objects. You can view this for free in the Fremantle Town Hall.

The main event will be this Thursday (June 28) when the Gyuto Monks will be chanting the Sounds of Selflessness at the Town Hall from 8 pm. The main event will be a Harmonic Chanting performance ‘Sounds of Selflessness’ at the Fremantle Town Hall on Thursday 28 June at 8.00 pm.

Tickets $30 available through http://www.heatseeker.com.au – outlet at Mills Record store.
