We are honoured to be hosting the monks of Tashi Lhunpo monastery during the week as they create a sand mandala as an offering to His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Panchen Lama and give an evening merit-making activities workshop and an evening of chanting. 
 

 
Tashi Lhunpo monastery was refounded in South India after the Tibetans were forced to flee their homeland to keep their religious freedom.  Here the special study, meditation, practice and artistic traditions of the monastery have been kept alive despite so few of the monks being able to escape to freedom.
 
Tashi Lhunpo was founded near Shigatse in the central Tibetan province of Tsang by the very first Dalai Lama, Gendun Drub.  It became the monastic seat of one of the other high lamas of the Geluk tradition, the Panchen Lama, and was the centre of a unique and vibrant culture of spiritual development.  
 
Unfortunately, the current recognised incarnation of the Panchen Lama was 'disappeared' many years ago at a very young age by the Chinese Communist Party and it is unknown today whether he is dead or alive.
 
His Holiness the Dalai Lama has been very supportive and encouraging of the monks to keep alive their vibrant practice traditions and they are deeply supportive of him.
 
Over the years Jamyang has built a warm and close relationship with the monastery and the monks and their UK charitable organisation Tashi Lhunpo UK and we look forward to spending time once more with our delightful friends.
 
Please do come along to see the mandala as it takes shape and please do come to the evening workshop and chanting sessions.  The mandala will be dissolved/ destroyed on the morning of Sunday so if you want to see that please do come along around 9.30am.
 
The monks usually set up shop while with us offering a chance to support the monastery directly. 
A particular favourite on the last two visits was the yak hair blankets, really really warm in winter.
