We are honored to present the Buddhist Monks of the Drepung Gomang Monastery as part of their Sacred  Arts Tour of the US.   We are very blessed to have the opportunity to observe the creation of a beautiful  Sand Mandala, from itís sacred  beginning to itís ceremonial end.  Hours for viewing the monks at work are scheduled each day, as well as special events and workshops.   We will have their beautiful handmade crafts for sale at the studio during the hours of mandala viewing and events.  The sale of these items as well as donations for the mandala creation and events go to funding the monastery in India.  It is truly an honor to host the monks and support the important  spiritual works which they dedicate their lives to.
