4. TIBETAN MONKS ARRIVE IN AMERICA WITH MULTI-MEDIA PROGRAM


Forwarded by Sharpa Tulku

This week fourteen monks from Sera Je Monastery
in India arrive in Madison, Wisconsin to begin
their North American tour with the multi-media
program, WILDLIFE, TAMED MIND: THE SPIRIT OF TIBET.
Tibet comes alive through its vibrant and colorful
rituals as the Sera Je monks perform dynamic masked
dances to the rumble of twelve-foot musical horns and
the clash of cymbals. Vivid photographic images of
the splendid natural beauty of the "Land of snows" fill
a large format screen, and His Holiness the Dalai Lama
describes his training and spiritual practice in video
excerpts that radiate with his warmth and wisdom.

WILDLIFE, TAMED MIND takes the audience beyond the
myth of "Shangrila," in a narrative that tells the
story of Tibet, how it rose to great political power,
how it became a sacred land where the teachings of
Buddhism flourished, and how the Communist Chinese
invasion devastated a magnificent and happy nation.

The program unites the live dance, music and chant of
Sera Je monks, with the narrative flow of multi-media
imagery to produce a whole and coherent picture of
Tibetan history, culture and religion. Sera Je tour
will be travelling all over North, Central, and
South America between February to December, 1969.
The tour schedule through May will appear in the
forthcoming Snow Lion Newsletter.
