Sand Mandala Creation/Dissolution – Will be led by Lama Sonam from Drikung Meditation Center in Arlington, MA. The Sand Mandala is an offering made in the tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. “A Sand Mandala is creating an outer environment that reflects the meditator’s inner reality of peace, harmony and health as developed through meditation and contemplation,” says Lama Sonam. “This wish will extend to the entire community and world through the visualization and actualization of the Sand Mandala.”
Considered a mythical land for centuries, Tibet possesses an extraordinarily rich cultural heritage. Cape Cod’s First Tibetan Cultural Festival will present a thematic showcase of Tibetan traditions to build awareness of this inspiring culture and to raise funds to help provide humanitarian aid for women and children in this region of the world.
Help Tibetan Nuns, Inc., a non-profit organization, is sponsoring the festival which will run from May 21 through June 9th and will feature a series of art, film, dance, music and ritual events held at some of Cape Cod's finest cultural venues. The board members of Help Tibetan Nuns, Inc., are so grateful for the collaborative efforts of the Cape Cod Museum of Art, The Cape Cinema and The Cultural Center of Cape Cod to host the events and make the festival possible.
