Curtains to Tibet fest

Culture Spread

The three-day cultural presentation of Tibet came to a close in a traditional manner with the dismantling of the mandala. The programme was a way to silently protest against the Red Army and present the peace loving culture of Tibet to Bangaloreans. 

Palden Namgyal, Tenzin Choekyi and Dawa Tsering presented a musical concert using the traditional Tibetan instruments like Yangchen and Dram-ngyen (string instruments). The trio played The Enthronement of His Holiness and Grateful Parent.

Earlier in the day, Monk Namdak, spoke on Buddha and Dalai Lama. Organisers of the programme said there was an overwhelming response to the event from Bangaloreans.
“Everyday during the programme, there were more than hundreds of people who visited us during the programme,” said Suresh Jayram, Curator of Rewa (50 years of hope). The programme was supported by Asia Arts Network, an international granting body, that supports art and culture.
