Get Your Tickets! Tibetan Healing and Peace Dances

On Friday, November 4th at 8pm, Drigung Kagyu monks from the Dehra Dun monastery in India will perform a series of sacred dances at the Betty Oliphant Theatre in Toronto (map). This is an exceptionally rare opportunity to witness a transcendent beauty that lies at the very heart of Tibetan culture.

The evening will consist of sacred dances, chants and meditation, accompanied by live music on traditional instruments. Each individual piece will be introduced by Tashi Jamyangling, so its particular historic context and sacred function might be appreciated by all. Tashi Jamyangling is a renowned documentary film-maker and translator. He was appointed by his Holiness the Dalai Lama as one of the Tibetan envoys to visit China in the official visit of 1978.  The evening will be introduced by Philip Shepherd, author of the book New Self, New World.  Tibetan refreshments and Dharma souvenirs available in the lobby.

Tickets $25, students/seniors $15, tickets available at the door. Limited seating, reservations recommended. This is a fund-raising event for the Drigung Kagyu monks who perform and Toronto Cat Rescue, Toronto Humane Society and Toronto Wildlife Centre.
