PASADENA, Calif.—Divine Performing Arts’ (DPA) 2009 World Tour has attracted people from different parts of the world. Among the many who enjoyed DPA’s performance was the Dalai Lama’s disciple Sangye Gyatso.
Master Gyatso liked DPA’s performance very much. He was surprised to see Dance of the Snow-Capped Mountain, which he said was just the same as the dances seen in Tibet. “They dance the same [as Tibetans] … what they manifest is the same, everything is the same,” he said.
Regarding the Buddha image in the backdrop, Master Gyatso said, “It was well done … Shakyamuni’s image was conveyed very well ... [it showed] Buddha’s thoughts.” To show how much he appreciated DPA’s performance, he commented on today’s society: “[Today’s people] don’t know what Buddha is like, don’t know what Buddhism is, don’t know what is good about Buddhism. But, he said, DPA has presented these precisely.”
Master Gyatso missed the past when the world was peaceful and in unity. DPA impressed him, because it demonstrated this message. He felt DPA’s performance incorporated many important messages like freedom of religion and helping each other. “It is the foundation of peace,” he stated.
