Loving Kindness & Compassion In Action

Tibetan monks promote peace in South Africa.

In this rare occurrence a group of four Tibetan monks, a Doctor trained in the ancient Tibetan healing system, and an Astrological professional will visit South Africa on a cultural tour promoting peace and wellbeing. They will construct Sand Mandalas, offer Medical consultations and give Astrological readings to the general public in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban from 26 September to 21 October 2018.

A Sand Mandala is a Tibetan Buddhist tradition involving the creation of a spiritual symbol representing a cosmic universe of celestial bodies made from coloured sand. Usually four monks work side by side to create this two-dimensional representation of a three-dimensional ideal universe. This painstakingly time-consuming procedure is a very rare sight to see and the monks will construct the sand mandala design of Chenrezig, the Buddha of Compassion to generate strong compassionate and peaceful energy.

To symbolise the transitory nature of life, the sand mandala is ritualistically destroyed once it has been completed. The Office of Tibet South Africa and the Tibet Society SA have arranged for this group of Tibetan masters to be at the Simon’s Town museum from 26 to 29 September, in Johannesburg at the Wits Origins Centre from 2 to 7 October and in Durban at the Denis Hurley Centre from 15 to 21 October.

The public are invited to attend any of these events. To book the Tibetan Doctor or Astrologer or for more information please contact:
