Drepung Gomang Sacred Arts Tour


Tashi Gomang Dharma Center/DGCEC hosts Drepung Gomang Sacred Arts Tours

TGDC hosts the wonderful visits of Drepung Gomang Sacred Arts Tours annually in the United States, traveling from community to community to share compassion and joy. The four-fold mission as stated by Drepung Gomang Monastery is

  • To make a contribution to world healing and peace by sharing unique Tibetan Buddhist teachings, sacred religious performances, chanting, and Tibet’s unique identity and treasures of culture and authentic traditions.
  • To offer prayer with all: “Recognizing well, and very deeply, that there have been great tragedies in every part of the world, we want to share our sympathy and prayers together with you as human beings sharing this planet and sharing the future of this home of ours.”
  • To generate a greater awareness of the endangered Tibetan civilization and human rights abuses by the Communist Chinese since 1959. As the situation in Tibet is becoming more desperate by the day, due to massive displacement of Tibetans by Chinese citizens sent there by the Communist government, and ever new rules and difficulties, especially at the monasteries, we need your help now.
  • To raise support for the refugee monks’ community in south India for proper food, improvement in health and hygiene and for providing better education facilities for the monk students.

To schedule a visit by the Drepung Gomang Sacred Arts Tour, please contact National Coordinator, Anne Walter 502 619-1652.
