Tibetan Monks

Our library system hosted the Tibetan Monks from the Drepung Gomang Monastery.  We were able to attend the opening ceremony and learn about the monks.

The ceremony consisted of the traditional chanting of the monks with each monk singing a full chord of three notes. The puja was accompanied by symbolic hand gestures, cymbals, drums, horns and flutes.

It was very interesting to see and hear the chanting.
