The Sacred Art Tour Experience
Visitors to the temple witnessed the entire process from creation through dispersal of a sacred sand mandala. This visit, starting Tuesday, March 20, 2007 through Sunday, March 25, 2007, was a wonderful success. The week long visit ended with the dispersal of sands on Main Street, downtown Torrington on Sunday, March 25, 2007 at 11 AM.
The Gomang Monastery’s Sacred Art Tour is currently traveling throughout the USA focusing on cultural awareness, opportunities for exchange, sacred arts, traditions and community. The week long visit in New Hartford was dedicated to cultivating peace. The visit opened up unique opportunities to experience the art and culture of Tibet at the temple and elsewhere in the community. People of all beliefs were welcome to attend and fully share in this experience. All events were by donation, gratefully accepted to house, feed and educate members of the Drepung Gomang Monastery. Additional information about Drepung Gomang Monastery and their Sacred Art Tour is available on their website www.Gomang.org.
