Sacred Music Sacred Dance for World Healing
The Buddhist monks of the Drepung Loseling Monastery promote world peace and healing, and share Tibet’s ancient sacred arts with Western audiences. Sponsored by Richard Gere Productions and the Loseling Institute, their tours are endorsed by the Dalai Lama as a means of raising international awareness of the endangered Tibetan civilization. Dressed in rich brocaded silk, the lamas play sacred music on traditional 10-foot-long trumpets, cymbals, bells and gyaling horns. The multiphonic singers chant in deep, resonant voices using a technique in which each person holds three notes simultaneously. In masks and colorful costumes they present the Dance of the Sacred Snow Lion and other temple dances performed for thousands of years in Tibet.
