Tibetan Sacred Music Performance

Monks

Wed, 11/06/2013

The Sera Jey monks are on a U.S. tour to perform sacred music and art. Their aim is to sow the seeds of world harmony and compassion, and to bring attention to their monastic secondary school in India. The monks will create a sand mandala and perform sacred music on Loyola's campus.

The monks will offer a Sacred Music Performance on Thursday, November 14, at 7:30pm in Nunemaker Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.  

The Tibetan monastic music and dance tradition originated with the earliest Buddhist practice. The great masters of the Buddhist lineages passed their visions of deities' movements to their students through sound and music. The sound of the drum represents religion itself. The monks who perform scared dance aim at subduing such negativities as violence, disease, ignorance, jealousy, and hatred.
